On Tuesday afternoon, the Minnesota Twins announced that the club was demoting right-handed pitcher Liam Hendriks to Triple-A Rochester and would be bringing up right-handed pitcher Cole De Vries in his place.
The move comes the morning after Hendriks was unable to register the win against the Detroit Tigers on Monday night despite owning a 6-1 lead. Allowing four runs on six hits over four innings, Hendriks was pulled in place of Anthony Swarzak who managed to earn the win.
Hendriks was winless in eight starts with the Twins this season and has an 7.04 ERA with 10 home runs allowed in 38.1 innings pitched.
De Vries held the Kansas City Royals to just one run in six innings on Saturday night and will likely start Saturday night in Texas. He is 2-1 in four appearances with the Twins this season and has a 3.73 ERA over 21 innings pitched.
