Twins Call Up Top Arm Berrios
MINNEAPOLIS -- A day after sending down one of their top prospects, the Minnesota Twins have called up another of their renowned young players -- pitcher Jose Berrios.
Berrios is regarded as the Twins' #2 prospect, behind outfielder Byron Buxton -- who was sent down to the minors yesterday.
In three starts for AAA Rochester, Berrios has posted a 2-0 record with a 1.06 ERA, striking out 20 batters in 17 innings of work.
Berrios was the 32nd overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. While small in stature (6-0 185), the Puero Rican prospect is said to have a live fastball in the mid-90s with a good slurve and a plus change-up.
The 21-year-old right-hander will make his Major League debut tomorrow (Wednesday) against the Cleveland Indians.
