Twins plan to start Cole De Vries on Saturday



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins are recalling right-hander Cole De Vries from Triple-A Rochester to start the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against Kansas City.

The Twins announced the decision on Friday, which will become official on Saturday. De Vries went 1-1 with a 4.20 ERA in his first stint with the Twins this season. He is a native of the Minneapolis suburb of Eden Prairie and picked up his first career victory against Kansas City on June 4.

De Vries has pitched five innings in each of his first three starts while filling in on a Twins rotation that has been one of the worst in the American League.

De Vries will be making his fourth career start and second at home in front of friends and family.
