MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins are reinstating right-handed pitcher Tim Stauffer from the disabled list.

Stauffer missed 19 games because of a right intercostal strain. The Twins said Thursday that he’ll be back from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Rochester in time for Friday’s game in Chicago.

Stauffer made four rehab appearances for the Red Wings, pitching five innings with three earned runs.
