Twins Minor League Report (5/13): The Return of the 'Stache.

Every affiliate was involved in a transaction today.

The Red Wings placed P Liam Hendriks on the DL with right elbow inflammation. OF Antoan Richardson will take his place.

The RockCats, losing Richardson to Rochester, get Deibinson Romero, who finally arrived in the States and is ready to play baseball.

The Miracle activated OF Nate “That Pitch Hit Me” Roberts and sent INF Joel Licon back across the street.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

The Kernels add C Michael Quesada, who had been serving a 50-game suspension.

Oh, and hur-ray for Aaron Hicks. I think the monkey has come off of his back… finally.

Box Score

The Red Wings comeback fell short and the club drops to 15-23.

Chris Herrmann can hope to use today’s game as a springboard to improve for the rest of the season. After a fairly disappointing start this year, Herrmann went 3-for-4 with a double. He also scored two runs.

Jeff Clement hit his 3rd home run, his first at Frontier Field.

Chris Colabello added a double. Brian Dinkelman had a pinch-hit two run single with two outs in the ninth.

Virgil Vasquez, who will probably remain in the rotation while Hendriks is out, struck out a season-high seven batters. He allowed two runs on a walk and four hits in five innings. Because of but recently coming out of the bullpen, Vasquez threw only 72 pitches. He will probably be allowed to throw closer to 90 in his next outing.

Shairon Martis took the loss, allowing four runs on four walks and hit. Michael O’Connor relieved him and allowed an inherited runner to score before allowing a run of his own on three hits and two walks. He struck out two in 2.1 innings of work.

Kyle Gibson (2-4, 3.32), who would have started today’s game on normal rest, was pushed back a day after his complete game shutout and will make the start for the Red Wings tomorrow at 7:05 ET when Durham comes to town.

Cole DeVries will be making a rehab start on Wednesday.


The Rock Cats open a series in Bowie on Tuesday at 7:05 ET with xxxxx making the start.

Box Score

The Miracle pushed six runs across the plate – all with two-out – to improve to 28-8 on the season.

Nate Roberts, who missed the first part of the season with a knee injury, returned to the lineup to play his first baseball since destroying the Arizona Fall League. He batted leadoff, hit a double, drove in a run and, of course, was hit by a pitch.

Miguel Sano was 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored; he stole his 4th base but also committed his 9th error.

Angel Morales was 1-for-2 with a triple and also reached on HBP twice.

Matt Koch continues to rake, hitting his 5th double, and is now batting .337.

Jason Wheeler improved to 4-0. He pitched five innings, striking out four. He walked three, scattered eight hits and allowed two runners to score.

Nelvin Fuentes and Zach Jones combined to shut the Blue Jays down for the last four innings, both allowing only a single hit. Jones walked two. Fuentes struck out three while Jones struck out one.

Matt Summers (1-2, 4.29) takes the hill tomorrow at 7:05 ET

Box Score

A day after playing a very atypical baseball game, the Kernels and Snappers got back to regular baseball. Today, the Kernels fell 3-2 to the Snappers and are now 24-11 on the year.

Matt Tomshaw pitched a very solid seven innings. He struck out five and only allowed a walk and four hits. Unfortunately, one of those hits was a two-run homerun.

Tim Atherton relieved Tomshaw and was a bit out of control. He recorded five outs, all by strikeout. He also allowed four walks and one hit. The lone hit drove in the game-winning, walk-off run.

The offense apparently used most of their hits and runs yesterday. Only Niko Goodrum had a multi-hit game. He had a double and triple and is now batting .289.

Byron Buxton had a hit, two stolen bases (15 on the season) and scored twice.

Adam Walker, named MWL player of the week earlier in the day, struck out three times while going 0-for-4.

The Kernels return home and welcome Burlington to Pefect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium tomorrow. Brett Lee (2-2, 2.92) makes the 6:35 CT start.
