Twins to recall Kyle Waldrop

The Minnesota Twins announced today that they will recall right-handed pitcher Kyle Waldrop from Triple-A Rochester prior to Friday night’s game against the Royals.  In nine games for the Red Wings this season, Waldrop posted a 1.26 ERA (14.1 ip, 2 er) with five walks and five strikeouts.  He began the season on the Twins’ 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

To make room for Waldrop on the 25-man roster, the Twins optioned right-handed pitcher Jeff Manship to Triple-A Rochester.
