Nick Punto’s MRI on Monday revealed nothing more than a left ankle sprain and some swelling, so the Twins hope he can play sometime during the series. That was a close call since Jeff Cirillo is recovering from knee surgery and there’s no third baseman ready in the minors. Luis Rodriguez is expected to start at third base until Punto is ready, but Alexi Casilla has taken some grounders there, too.
