If I am reading between the lines correctly (i.e. 3 K's looking), it looks like he was throwing the breaking ball today too!
Yep. That gust we're all feeling is Twins fans everywhere breathing a collective sigh of relief. Hopefully today's effort means the clean bill of health that gets him back up to New Britain and full-tilt resumption of his fast track to the Twins starting rotation.
Overlooked here is a good bounceback effort from Thorpe. Couldn't quite match Meyer, but I'll definitely take 0 hits and 6 Ks in 3.1 innings pitched.
2 much-needed bits of positive Twins news.

Liam is still 24. Younger than Gibson and only 7 months older than Trevor May. I think there is still hope. I'm still hopeful he can figure it out and become a solid part of the rotation. If Diamond and Pelfrey get to suck for half a season in the rotation, I'm not sure what is stopping them from allowing Hendriks to get an extended look.
Do or do not. There is no try.
