Carlos Gomez is back in the lineup for the Twins, as they get set to face Gavin Floyd and the White Sox tonight. Gomez had been out since Friday with a sore calf.

Update: Manager Ron Gardenhire said Adam Everett (strained right shoulder) could be activated from the DL in time for Friday’s game. Everett is eligible to come off the DL on Wednesday, but the team wants to see him go through another on-field workout on Wednesday.

Scott Baker (strained groin muscle) will test the injury in a bullpen session Wednesday morning. Gardenhire said if Baker feels even the slightest hint of pain, he will head to the DL.

“We’re going to be very careful with this thing,” Gardenhire said. “He’s going to have to have no issues for us to put him back out there. The plan is to have him throw Saturday [against Detroit], but that could change tomorrow with his bullpen session.”
