Thorpe will be recalled to start Wednesday against the Rangers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear whether the Twins will briefly go with a six-man rotation, as Matt Shoemaker may have pitched his way out of the rotation mix. Texas has an 89 wRC+ against lefties this season, so it's a favorable spot for Thorpe at home. That said, he has a 6.48 ERA in 16.2 career innings as a big-league starter.
