Mijares almost ready

Barring any setbacks, the Pioneer Press reports that Mijares could be back on the big leagues by Monday.

Mijares has shown that he has stopper stuff and came up big for the Twins last year.  Most Twins fans should be excited to get him back.  But who goes down on Monday?  Its seems likely Burnett  will find himself on the plane back to Rochester.  Burnett has pitched well in the role of mop up guy.  In 12 IP he has 8 BB, 14 K 3.75 ERA and a slightly high WHIP of 1.58. He has proved that he can get big league hitters out and allowed for Brian Duensing to succeed in high leverage situations.   Does this mean Crain goes to "Mop Up" duty?  

Report after the jump

Mijares gets rehab assignment: Reliever Jose Mijares, on the disabled list with a sore left elbow, threw a bullpen session, then left for Rochester, N.Y., where he's scheduled to pitch twice with the Twins' Class AAA club.

The lefty hasn't pitched since April 15, when he gave up two hits and a walk in one inning during an 8-0 victory over Boston.

"He's going to throw a couple times there, I think Friday night and Sunday. Then we'll see where we're at" Gardenhire said. "Maybe he'll come back here Monday."
