He is expected to be activated the first day he is eligible if all continues to go well. Plouffe is eligible to make his return Wednesday, when the Twins return home to host the Brewers.

"He's doing everything and feels great, so by the time we get home he should be activated," Gardenhire said. "So we'll see what we have to do then."
