MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Minnesota shortstop Cristian Guzman returned to the Twins’ lineup Saturday after sitting out five games with inflammation behind his left kneecap.

Guzman, an All-Star last season, has struggled to a .211 batting average while playing through the soreness. He’s been caught on four of seven stolen base attempts and has only two extra base hits.

Another injured Twin, starting pitcher Joe Mays, threw lightly Saturday and will do the same on Monday. Mays, also an All-Star in 2001, made three starts before going on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow. He’s still out indefinitely.
