Twins looking to Aaron Thompson, Ryan Pressly for long relief
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) The Twins are working without a dedicated long reliever. Tim Stauffer is on the 15-day disabled list, and the team decided to send Tommy Milone to Triple-A so he could remain a starter, instead of sending him to the bullpen.
Manager Paul Molitor said he'd mix and match pitchers in long-relief situations. Aaron Thompson got the first call, going 2 1/3 innings on Saturday. Ryan Pressly is probably next.
Pressly was promoted from Triple-A on Friday.
"Pressly is probably one of the longer guys I could use in a game right now, but it could change day to day," Molitor said, per MLB.com.
"It's all fine by me," Pressly said. "I just want to pitch and prove to them I've made some tweaks, and I'm not the same reliever that was all over the place in Spring Training. I just have to take the opportunity and run with it."
Paul Molitor explains demotion of LHP Tommy Milone
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) The Twins reversed their decision to move struggling lefty Tommy Milone into long relief by sending him to Triple-A Rochester.
"It doesn't make sense for him to be up here in the bullpen," Paul Molitor told MLB.com. "He needs to be starting. I think he was a little taken aback. I don't know if he envisioned that scenario unfolding, but he's going to take it and hopefully take our encouragement to go down there and pitch well and be ready."
Milone began the year with 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the White Sox before collapsing. He posted a 7.20 ERA over his next three starts.
Molitor, however, decided it would be more prudent to keep Milone stretched out as a starter so he could be ready if and when his services are required in the rotation.
Twins reinstate Ricky Nolasco, Brian Duensing from disabled list
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) The Twins activated pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Brian Duensing from the disabled list Friday, the team announced.
Nolasco was pitching in Class A for his rehab assignment because of right elbow inflammation, while Duensing missed the last 14 games with a right intercostal strain.
In order to have Nolasco and Duensing on the 25-roster, the team sent pitchers Tommy Milone and Caleb Thielbar to its Triple-A affiliate.
Twins to activate, start RHP Nolsaco Saturday vs. White Sox
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(4/30/15) Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco will be activated from the 15-day disabled list to start Saturday's game against the White Sox, per Fox Sports North.
Nolasco has made one start this season before going down with elbow inflammation. He allowed six earned runs over three innings against the Tigers on Opening Day. Manager Paul Molitor says Nolasco will be on a pitch limit of about 75-80 pitches on Saturday.
The Twins will shift Tommy Milone, who had been scheduled to start Saturday's game, to the bullpen rather than using a six-man rotation.
Milone has made four starts this season, and currently has a 4.76 ERA and a 13:11 K:BB ratio.
