MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins say shortstop Jorge Polanco has been placed on the bereavement list following the death of his grandfather.

The Twins have recalled first baseman Kennys Vargas from Triple-A Rochester to replace Polanco on the 25-man roster.

Vargas appeared in 24 games for the Twins this season, hitting .258 (23-for-89) with five home runs and 19 RBI. He’ll join the team Wednesday night in Seattle.
