Perez (shoulder) was activated off the injured list Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Perez has been out since early August while battling shoulder inflammation, but he's ready to go after appearing in eight rehab contests. Austin Hedges will start behind the plate in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, but Perez will likely return to the lineup for the nightcap. Ryan Lavarnway is no longer needed with Perez back in action, so he was designated for assignment to clear space on the roster.
