News: Tonkin will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Tonkin will take the place of Josh Willingham on the active roster, after Willingham was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday. The 24-year-old Tonkin throws hard and has shown the ability to make batters whiff in the high minors, but he's probably best suited for low-leverage work with the Twins at this stage in his career.(RotoWire, )
