Congrats on the call up. What a great read, which I somehow missed.....

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

Why bring up a LOOGY when you have a righty in AAA who is doing well against RHB but even better against lefties?

 

/ spoiler: AJ Achter

Achter is better than O'Rourke against lefties?  Maybe in BABIP but I might trust K rate to translate a little better to MLB.  Career wise, O'Rourke has double Achter's K rate vs. LHB, plus slightly lower BB and HR rates.
