Herrmann suffered a cut above his nose in the first inning due to a foul tip off his mask on the first pitch of the game, reports the Star Tribune.

Twins' Suzuki gets a day off Thursday after a rough day Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"He got a little beat up," Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. "He's fine. He's a guy who can play nicked up. We saw that last year. Kurt loves to catch. He wants to catch as many games as he can."

Chris Herrmann drew the start Thursday at catcher.


Twins C Chris Herrmann is excited about making roster


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Twins catcher Chris Herrmann has made the roster as the backup catcher. Herrmann is very excited about having the opportunity, reports MLB.com.

"My heart's still pounding right now. This is something I've never felt ever before," said a visibly-excited Herrmann nearly an hour after learning he had made the first Opening Day roster of his career. "I didn't have a clue. I'm so used to getting sent back down."

Manager Paul Molitor confirmed the catcher's excitement saying, "Chris was very elated about the opportunity."

"With Chris, I do have a little more flexibility," said Molitor of Herrmann, who hit .310 with a home run and five RBI's in 42 Grapefruit League at-bats.

Herrmann's versatility played a large role in him being placed on the roster.

"I think it's huge," said the Twins' backup catcher. "Molly's been sticking me at first base a lot this spring and I feel like I've done a pretty good job. Every team needs somebody who's a versatile player, so it's good that I can play multiple positions just to help out this team."

Although Herrmann is excited about his chance to contribute for the team, he knows what he has gone through to get to this point.

"I think it's huge," said the Twins' backup catcher. "Molly's been sticking me at first base a lot this spring and I feel like I've done a pretty good job. Every team needs somebody who's a versatile player, so it's good that I can play multiple positions just to help out this team."

Herrmann batted .300 with one home run on 12 hits with four RBI, eight strikeouts and four walks this spring.


Twins option Josmil Pinto, Eric Fryer to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) The Twins have optioned catchers Josmil Pinto and Eric Fryer to Triple-A Rochester, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Pinto dealt with concussion issues late in the spring and went 6 for 17 in seven games of action. He could be back before long once he's received enough at-bats. Fryer was 9 for 32 with one home run this spring.

With the moves, the Twins are set to open the season with Kurt Suzuki as the starting catcher and Chris Herrmann as the backup.


Twins' Molitor: 'Time is running out' for Josmil Pinto


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Pinto has missed the last eight days after getting hit in the head three times by a backswing. 

Pinto, who failed his last concussion test, will be evaluated again on Sunday. If he passes, he could play on Monday. Molitor warned that it may already be too late, however, per MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger

Pinto has been competing with Chris Herrmann for the Twins' backup catcher spot. Herrmann is hitting .300 this spring with a homer and three RBI. 


Twins' Chris Herrmann working to improve his hitting


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Chris Herrmann knows that his hitting will have to make tremendous strides if he's going to break camp with the Twins. 

His defense is fine, and his versatility to catch, play all three outfield spots and first base is certainly a plus. But for Herrmann, his slash line of 196/.264/.284 slash line in 97 major-league games has to show signs of improving prior to opening day. 

"I know people want me to improve my bat, and I want to do that myself," Herrmann said, via MLB.com. "I know it helps out that I'm a utility guy, but at the end of the day, it's about hitting. And if I can swing the stick, I feel like I can make this team. So I'm doing everything I can."

Herrmann is competing for the backup catcher spot, though Josmil Pinto is still the favorite to win that job for now. 


Twins' Molitor: Pinto, Herrmann Fryer competing for backup catcher spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters on Tuesday that there is a three-man race between Josmil Pinto, Chris Herrmann and Eric Fryer for the club's backup role behind Kurt Suzuki, per MLB.com.

"That's going to be an interesting competition," Molitor said. "There's different criteria you can consider. Do you want the guy that is going to be your best defender for 30-40 games or you want to have the offense and hopefully have enough defense? I'm open-minded."

At this point, Pinto may be the early favorite because of his threat at the plate. He hit 257/.339/.445 with 11 homers and 30 RBIs in 78 career games with Minnesota. Herrmann slashed .194/.264/.284 hitter in 97 games over parts of three years with the Twins. Fryer is hitting .246 in 50 career games.

Ryan Doumit moves to RF to clear up PT for Chris Herrmann


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2013) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday catcher Ryan Doumit will primarily play in right field with Oswaldo Arcia and Chris Parmelee in the minors, freeing up playing time for Chris Herrmann as Joe Mauer's backup.

"Herrmann does a good job behind there, and I like Doumit in right field," Gardenhire said, per MLB.com. "[Doumit] is able to go out there, because we don't have him in the catching role, so he's doing all of his work out there. It's just easier for him to relax out there, because it's easier than catching, which beats you up a little bit."

Gardenhire added Doumit will see time behind the plate, but he has more experience in right field than Herrmann.

"He's going to catch," Gardenhire said of Doumit. "I don't want him to get away from that, but I want as many left-handed bats as I can in there. And he's more comfortable in right field than Herrmann. My other option is to put Herrmann in right field, but he hasn't played there, so I want to give him more time to work out there."
