In need of bullpen reinforcement, the Minnesota Twins plan to recall left-hander Caleb Thielbar from Triple-A Rochester a source said Monday.
The Twins later announced that left-hander Pedro Hernandez was sent out to make room on the 25-man roster.
With Scott Diamond and Hernandez each going only 4 1/3 innings in their respective starts, the Twins relievers combined to throw 9 1/3 innings over the past two games against the Boston Red Sox.
Thielbar owns a 3.76 ERA with 34 strikeouts and eight walks in 26 1/3 innings for Rochester this year. The Twins signed Thielbar, 26, from the St. Paul Saints in 2011.
