Report: Twins call up pitching prospect Jose Berrios
The Minnesota Twins are set to call up top pitching prospect Jose Berrios, according to LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minnesota Star-Tribune.
Berrios is expected to make his major league debut on Wednesday against the Cleveland Indians.
Ervin Santana is expected to be sent to the disabled list with a back injury, and fellow starter Tyler Duffey is also considered day-to-day with a shoulder injury.
Berrios has a 1.06 ERA with 20 strikeouts and just eight hits allowed in 17 innings of Triple A action this season. Twins general manager Terry Ryan was in attendance for Berrios’s start last week, when he pitched seven innings and allowed just two hits with seven strikeouts.
Berrios will turn 22 on May 27.
