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.
