Twins Plan An Additional Pair Of September Call-Ups

The Minnesota Twins have called up infielder Eduardo Escobar and relief pitcher Luis Perdomo, according to La Velle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune. Both players are expected to be available for Monday night's game vs. the Chicago White Sox.

Escobar, 23, was acquired by the Twins in the Francisco Liriano deal. In 146 plate appearances for Triple-A Rochester, he has hit .224/.261/.313 with a homer and eight runs batted in. A glove-first utility type, Escobar has made just three errors this year while seeing time at second base, third base, and shortstop.

Perdomo, 28, appeared in five games with the Twins while up with the team from late-July to mid-August. He posted a 1.50 ERA over six innings, despite walking seven batters and striking out just three. In 71.1 minor league innings this season, Perdomo has a 2.52 ERA with 67 strikeouts and 22 walks.

Rochester manager and Waseca, Minn. native Gene Glynn will also be joining the Twins for the remainder of the 2012 season starting on Friday, according to Neal.
