MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have recalled first baseman Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester, the last of three replacements in an All-Star break roster shake-up.

Colabello joined the team for Thursday’s game against Cleveland. The Twins announced before the break they were bringing up catcher/outfielder Chris Herrmann and infielder Doug Bernier, but they waited until after Colabello played in the Triple-A All-Star game to make the move with the 29-year-old.

Colabello was batting .354 with 24 doubles, 24 home runs and 76 RBIs in 322 at-bats for Rochester. He went 2 for 16 over his first two stints with the Twins this season.

Outfielders Oswaldo Arcia and Chris Parmelee and infielder Eduardo Escobar were optioned to Rochester after Minnesota’s final game of the first half.
