Twins Announce call-ups

Well, a surprise, surprise.

 

Jose Mijares, pitching 10 games this season, is the lefty promoted to the big leagues. Yes, he's on the 40-man roster. I think the Twins need to make a decision on him next season to see if he is good enough to keep around. Be interesting to see.

 

Otherwise, the team called up Bobby Korecky and Philip Humber, as expected.

 

Matt Tolbert returns from the disabled list.

 

Matt Macri and Jason Pridie come up for the bench.

 

(Damn, a bunt and error and the Twins lose!)

 

The other surprise is Ryan Jorgensen, who has to be added to the 40-man roster, as the third cartcher. He's a vet. Originally thought the 29-year-old was also injured. Expect that he won't hang around as the Twins will just protect (again) three catchers on the 40-man come late fall.

 

Be interesting to see what happens to vets like Julio DePaula, Oswaldo Sosa, Sergio Santos when 40-man rosters are set after post-season play.

 

Almost thought Brian Duensing would get a call as he is aging, the Twins could look at him above and beyond work in spring training. But not to be in 2008.
