MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have sent designated hitter Kennys Vargas to Triple-A Rochester.

On Sunday, he was left out of the starting lineup for the second straight game and was instead a late-inning replacement. Vargas has three hits in his last 12 at-bats and saw his batting average dip slightly to .248. Manager Paul Molitor says Vargas is being sent down less to improve his mechanics, and more to work on his mental approach.

The Twins will play a two-game series Tuesday and Wednesday at Pittsburgh, a National League city where there will be no DH.
