Twins reinstate Jorge Polanco from IL, demote Edouard Julien to minors

The Minnesota Twins reinstated second baseman Jorge Polanco from the 10-day injured list on Thursday.

Polanco, 29, landed on the IL on May 20 with a left hamstring strain. He is batting .284 with four homers and 14 RBI in 23 games after opening the season on the IL with a left knee injury.

The Twins optioned infielder Edouard Julien to Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding roster move.

Julien, 24, is batting .210 with four homers and eight RBIs in 19 games with the Twins this season.
