Twins recall Garrett Jones

The Twins recalled Class AAA Rochester first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones because of Rondell White's latest setback. The team had hoped White would be ready after the All-Star break, but recent soreness in the outfielder's troublesome calf has extended his recovery time.

Jones was batting .295 with 29 doubles, 11 home runs and 58 RBIs for the Red Wings. In four appearances with the Twins earlier in the season, Jones went 1 for 8.
