Twins Shuffle Roster

After putting a close to a disappointing first-half, the Twins on Sunday decided to shuffle up their roster heading into the All-Star break.

Following the game, Minnesota optioned outfielders Oswaldo Arcia and Chris Parmelee, as well as infielder Eduardo Escobar, to Triple-A Rochester. In their place, the club recalled catcher Chris Herrmann and selected the contract of utility infielder Doug Bernier. Manager Ron Gardenhire said the team will announce the third promotion sometime before Friday’s game against the Indians.
