Twins recall Chris Parmelee

Attached Image: Parmelee.jpg The Twins made a move today sending starter Cole DeVries down to Rochester and recalling the white-hot hitting Chris Parmelee back to the club.

After struggling hardcore at the beginning of the year with the Twins, Parmelee was demoted to AAA and has rediscovered his swing. Interestingly, according to FirstInning.com's data, Parmelee's line drive rate was down to 13% but his zone acumen was significantly better as he walked in 12 of his 58 plate appearances while only coaxing six free passes in 92 plate appearances with the Twins. Overall, the left-handed hitting Parmelee has posted a .375/.500/.708 batting line with four home runs and 12 runs batted in.

While less than 60 plate appearances is not a strong sampling - it's the same size which fooled people during spring training - he has certainly made quite the impression in Rochester.
