Garver's College Coach Says He's Been Called Up

Posted by Brandon Warne , 17 August 2017 · 1,117 views

It looks as though Twins fans may finally get their wish, as Mitch Garver is headed to the big leagues according to Ray Birmingham.



Birmingham is the head coach of the University of New Mexico Lobos baseball team, where Garver played from 2010-13 before the Minnesota Twins took him in the ninth round of the 2013 draft.

UPDATE: Garver's mother has also retweeted the original tweet.
UPDATE II: Gail also tweeted that they'll be in Minneapolis for tomorrow's game, and that Mitch's wife is already here on rotations (work?).

The Twins have not yet announced a move, nor a corresponding move which will most likely be Robbie Grossman to the disabled list with a broken thumb.

The Twins added Garver to the 40-man roster over the offseason, and he has responded in a big way by hitting .291/.387/.541 with the Red Wings while playing mostly catcher (67 games) but also some at first base (five games) and even in left field (14 games).

Excellent news.  Lets move Giminez out and fill some more spots with quality players.

And realistically, since Sept. 1 is two weeks from today, most activations are pretty much for the duration.

Makes perfect sense. We need a RH DH and he can spell an OF in LF occasionally. He can also catch Berrios since they've worked together before. We're in a stretch of 14 games in 13 days so the catchers need help. Granite seems like a nice player but doesn't really help us much. He can come up on 9/1.
