Twins Roster Moves: Kyle Waldrop Returns, Replacing Matt Carson

The Minnesota Twins decided to make some roster moves following Thursday night's game, shuffling outfielder Matt Carson back to Triple-A Rochester so the team could re-insert Kyle Waldrop back in the bullpen.

The Twins went with an extra outfielder while Denard Span dealt with his recent injury, but since Span returned Thursday night -- and the Twins bullpen has been battered as of late -- the team has decided to go back to having an extra arm on the roster.

The Minnesota Twins announced following Thursday night's game that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Kyle Waldrop from Triple-A Rochester. The former first round draft pick will be in uniform when the Twins play Texas Friday night in Arlington.

Waldrop will be making his second stint with the Twins this year, after appearing in 24 games with the Red Wings, posting a 3.34 ERA (35.0 ip, 13 er) with four saves.

Waldrop's return certainly can't hurt as balance is re-attained in the Twins' lineup.
