According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins activated second baseman Orlando Hudson from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday and will start him this afternoon against the Indians and left-hander David Huff.

Hudson, 32, spent the last two-plus weeks recovering from a left oblique strain while Alexi Casilla filled in at second base.  The Twins are undoubtedly pleased to have the more offensively-potent Hudson back near the top of the starting lineup.

Hudson was batting .285 with a .356 on-base percentage, a .387 slugging percentage, four home runs and 27 RBI in 323 at-bats before the left oblique injury.  He’s batting second on Sunday behind center field fill-in Jason Repko and in front of catcher Joe Mauer.

Right-handed reliever Anthony Slama was optioned back to Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move.
