MILWAUKEE -- The Twins activated reliever Sam Dyson from the 10-day injured list and sent reliever Cody Stashak back to Class AAA Rochester before tonight's game against the Brewers (7:10 p.m., FSN).
Dyson, acquired at the trade deadline from the Giants for three prospects, had two bad outings for the Twins (six runs, six hits, two-thirds of an inning) before they sidelined him because of right biceps tendinitis.
Overall, in 51 games this season, he's 4-1 with a 3.48 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 51.2 innings.
Stashak appeared in six games for the Twins, going 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA.
Martin Perez, whose spot in the rotation seems to be in danger, pitches tonight for the Twins with his ERA ballooning to 4.80. Chase Anderson (5-2, 3.70) pitches for Milwaukee.
