Twins to add Pinto, 7 others to roster

BALTIMORE (AP) The Minnesota Twins intend to add eight players to their roster, including catcher Josmil Pinto and four pitchers.

The moves were announced Monday before Minnesota concluded a four-game series at Camden Yards. The players were expected to join the team Tuesday, when the Twins host the Chicago White Sox.

Those recalled from Rochester were left-hander Logan Darnell, right-hander Michael Tonkin and outfielders Chris Herrman and Aaron Hicks.

Minnesota also selected the contracts of right-handers Lester Oliveros and A.J. Achter, along with infielder Doug Bernier.

The Twins had been playing with just three position players on the bench.

Manager Ron Gardehire said: ''We need some bodies. This will be huge to get a bunch of fresh people in here.''
