Butera to join Twins for tilt against Angels
ANAHEIM -- The Twins will recall catcher Drew Butera from Triple-A Rochester in time for Tuesday night's game against the Angels, the club announced.

To make room for Butera on the roster, the club will make a corresponding roster move before the game.

In 15 games with Rochester, Butera hit .279 with three doubles, one homer and five RBIs.

The move gives the Twins three catchers, as Butera joins Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit on the roster.
