The Minnesota Twins announced Sunday that second baseman Alexi Casilla is going to play two injury rehab games for Beloit on Monday night and Tuesday night in Cedar Rapids.

Casilla, who was a member of the Kernels in 2004 and 2005, has been on the disabled list since July 29 with a torn ligament in his right thumb. He is hitting .313 with four home runs and 39 RBIs in 243 at-bats this season for Minnesota, which is tied with Chicago for first place in the American League’s Central Division.

“He seems to think that this is going to be all he needsĀ (to be ready to rejoin the Twins) – two days,” Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire said.
