MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Baseball returns to Target tonight for the first time in more than two weeks as the Twins and other Major League teams return to action following the All Star Game break.

The Twins host A.L. Central Division rival Cleveland for a three game series starting at 7:10 pm Friday night.

Three new faces will be on the Twins roster to begin the season's second half. The team has recalled shortstop Doug Bernier and catcher Chris Herrmann to replace three players sent to AAA Rochester--Eduardo Escobar, Chris Parmelee and Oswaldo Arcia.

The Star Tribune reports that Chris Colabello will be recalled today, brining the Twins roster to full capacity. Colabello leads the International League in batting with a .354 average and 75 runs batted in. He's also hit 24 home runs.

The Twins enter Friday night's game with a 39-53 record. They're in fourth place in the AL Central, 12 games behind Detroit.
