Rivas Out, Cuddyer In

Luis Rivas was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, making room on the Twins 25-man roster for Michael Cuddyer. Rivas has struggled pretty much all season for the Twins, and with the addition of Bret Boone, his services were no longer needed. Cuddyer, who was injured on June 29 against Kansas City, will serve as a utility infielder for the Twins.
