Twins recall Duensing, option Henn to Rochester

The Twins announced today that they are recalling left-hander Brian Duensing from Triple-A Rochester and to make room on the roster for him, they have outrighted left-hander Sean Henn to Rochester.

Duensing, 26, was on the Opening Day roster for the Twins but he made only one appearance — allowing two runs on two hits in Chicago– before being sent back to Rochester on April 13. Duensing was 4-6 with a 4.66 ERA in 13 starts at Rochester.

Henn made a strong early impression with the Twins, but posted a 7.15 ERA in 14 appearances for Minnesota.

Duensing will be in uniform for the Twins for Friday night’s series opener against the Tigers at the Metrodome.

Low risk, low reward move I guess. Duensing hopefully won’t be any worse than Henn, but I doubt he’ll be remarkable.
Twins Limey

They are merely “plugging the hole” remaining, like the Dutch boy. Starters are lighting up, relief is “new and improved” with Keppel’s nice performances, Dickey and Guerrier doing yeoman work and Jose Mijares looking like a stand-out in the making…. Nathan is Nathan ofcourse… with this one last piece, if it pays dividends and gardy can go to anybody with confidence, we are in for a run!

This is another another one of the conservative moves where our favorite team. This is attempting to strike it rich with an unproven pitcher that has an high ERA by AAA standards, and a losing record. What’s next?
Go out and get yourself a bonafide long to middle relief guy with proven major league success for the bullpen. Don’t these fans deserve a American League Central title in their last year in the Metrodome? What a way to go out, as well as carry interest over into next season at the new Target Field.

I watched Duesing play when he was at Nebraska and he’s got some great stuff. He’s been developing in the farm system for a few years now and hopefully this call up is what he needs to reach the great potential that he possesses. He’s definitely got what it takes to pitch for the Twins.
