Twins right-hander B.J. Hermsen will undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the 2015 season, according to the Star Tribune. Hermsen, a sixth-round pick in 2008, was once considered the club's top prospect, though he's never reached the Triple-A level. Last season, he posted a 7.34 ERA through 38 innings of work as a reliever.
The Minnesota Twins shaved a handful of players from their roster on Monday, optioning catcher Chris Herrmann to Triple-A, and sending pitchers B.J. Hermsen, Trevor May, Michael Tonkin, catcher Josmil Pinto, and infielder Danny Santana to Double-A.
