Liam Hendriks appears to be back in business with the Minnesota Twins. After an ineffective start to the season that saw the Aussie pitcher pick up a 9.00 ERA, he was sent down to AAA but has pitched effectively down there with a 5-0 record and 1.94 ERA.
With Carl Pavano out on the DL for a long term stay with shoulder issues that have been plauging him all season long along with a bunch of other pitchers injured, PJ Walters being the most recent, the Twins are scrapbooking together a rotation a day at a time. According to Twincities.com, the Twins will be pulling up Hendriks from AAA to take the start on Saturday.
They still don't have a fifth starter announced for the foreseeable future, but won't need one until next Saturday since they have Monday off.
