Twins recall Hendriks to start Wednesday vs A’s
The Minnesota Twins have recalled rookie Liam Hendriks from
Triple-A Rochester to take the rotation spot opened when fellow
right-hander Nick Blackburn was demoted to the minor league
The Twins announced Hendriks will start Wednesday in Oakland,
where Blackburn was originally scheduled to face the Athletics.
Hendriks made eight starts over two previous stints this season
with the Twins, but only two of them lasted at least six innings
with three runs allowed or fewer. His ERA is 7.04, with 10 home
runs surrendered in 38 1-3 innings. The 23-year-old Australian had
a 6.17 ERA over four starts in 2011 with the Twins.
That’s a stark contrast from the way he’s pitched for the Red
Wings. He’s 9-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 16 starts.
