Twins activate rookie Graham from DL

CHICAGO (AP) The Minnesota Twins activated right-handed reliever J.R. Graham from the disabled list prior to Friday night's game at the Chicago White Sox.

Graham missed 14 games with right shoulder inflammation. He's 1-1 with a 5.15 ERA in 57 2-3 innings.

The Rule 5 pick earned his first major league victory in an 11-7 win over Tampa Bay on Aug. 25, then was placed on the DL the next day.
