Buscher optioned to Triple-A Rochester
The Twins announced on Saturday afternoon that they had optioned infielder Brian Buscher to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Orlando Cabrera on the roster.
Buscher batted .227 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 53 games for the Twins this season.
The club had expected to make a move following Friday night’s game, but Michael Cuddyer left the contest in the 11th inning with a strained lower back. Cuddyer said he expected to be fine for Saturday’s game.
