    • Astudillo was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Astudillo hadn't been receiving regular opportunities for the Twins, as his start at third base Friday against the Rangers was his first in 10 days. He was sent down to make way for the return of Byron Buxton (hip), though he'll likely be one of the first few names called upon if the team needs another bat in the future.

    • Astudillo remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros. Though he offers multi-positional versatility for a Twins squad that remains without several key position players due to injury, Astudillo looks like he'll stick in a bench role for the foreseeable future. The 29-year-old hasn't proven deserving of a regular spot in the lineup after slashing a meager .252/.263/.391 through 118 plate appearances this season.

    • Astudillo (hand) will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against the White Sox. Astudillo will return to the lineup for the first time since exiting Sunday's game against the Athletics with a bruised hand, but the Twins never seemed too concerned about the injury. The 29-year-old was used off the bench in Monday's 16-4 loss to the White Sox, going 0-for-3 while seeing action in the field at catcher and pitcher. Astudillo will be filling in Wednesday for Josh Donaldson, who is resting for the day game after a night game.

    • Astudillo was removed from Sunday's game against the A's with a bruised hand, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The 29-year-old went 0-for-1 and exited Sunday's contest after suffering the injury on a hit-by-pitch. Astudillo was working behind the plate and was replaced by Ben Rortvedt.

    • Astudillo started at first base and went 2-for-4 with a double to raise his batting average to .324 in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox. Astudillo appears to have supplanted Miguel Sano as the starting first baseman in the near term as he's been hot at the plate while Sano has struggled. Astudillo will likely move back to a utility role when several Twins return from the injured list, but he could stick in the lineup if he stays hot since so many of Minnesota's regulars are struggling at the plate.
