Twins Recall Chris Parmelee, Send Cole De Vries To Triple-A Rochester

The Minnesota Twins have had several pitchers start games for them this season, with injuries and issues aplenty. Now, they've sent one of those pitchers down in order to bring up a position player, as it happens. According to the Pioneer Press, the Twins have sent down pitcher Cole De Vries to Triple-A Rochester. De Vries, who played with the University of Minnesota, was 1-1 with a 4.20 earned run average in three starts for the Twins.

First baseman Chris Parmelee is the guy they're calling up. He started the season on the active roster but hat a paltry batting average, hitting just .179 with no home runs and three runs batted in. That was in 27 appearances, too. But now the Twins need him, and maybe his stint with Rochester did him good.

He hit .375 with four home runs and 12 RBIs at Rochester, so the Twins are hoping he can carry some of that momentum with him. Minnesota begins a three-game set against the Chicago Cubs on Friday, and are off on Thursday.
