MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have recalled first baseman Chris Parmelee from Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins announced the move on Wednesday, a few hours before playing the Seattle Mariners. Parmelee has struggled in three stints with the Twins this season, hitting .204 with two homers and six RBIs in 40 games.

He has fared much better in Rochester, hitting .338 with 17 homers and 49 RBIs in 64 games. The left-handed hitter could play some outfield or give Justin Morneau the occasional breather at first base.

To make room for Parmelee, the Twins out-righted right-hander Jeff Gray to Rochester. Gray went 6-1 with a 5.71 ERA in 49 appearances out of the bullpen this season.
