Chargois (elbow) is heading to Florida to continue rehabbing from an elbow impingement, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
MRI results on his elbow came back negative, so Chargois will head to extended spring training to continue his rehab process. Once he's finally healthy, the 26-year-old should be a candidate to be called up to the majors given his powerful fastball and strong strikeout rates (10.5 K/9 at Triple-A last season).
Chargois was placed on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Rochester due to an elbow impingement, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Should be a short-term situation," said Brad Steil, the Twins director of minor league operations.
Chargois has thrown just 2.1 innings this season as he missed time with a strained shoulder muscle. He's a candidate to be called up to the majors when healthy due to a fastball that can reach the high 90s and strong strikeout rates (10.5 K/9 last year at Triple-A).
Chargois was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Chargois was competing for one of the Twins' final bullpen spots this spring, but his struggles assured that he would be sent down to Triple-A to begin the season. The 26-year-old allowed eight runs over 8.1 innings in camp, though his high-power arm did manage to strike out eight batters as well. He posted a 1.29 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 35.0 innings at Triple-A Rochester last year, and if he's able to show that stuff again to start 2017, it's very possible he'll spend some time in the Twins' bullpen.
Chargois has given up eight runs over eight innings this spring and may not make the final 25-man roster, Patrick Reusse of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Chargois had a 1.29 ERA with 41 strikeouts against just eight walks in 35.0 innings last year at Triple-A, but struggled in the majors with a 4.70 ERA and ugly 17:12 K:BB ratio. With a high 90s fastball and strong strikeout rate (10.5 K/9 at Triple-A), Chargois could be a needed high-power arm in the bullpen, but it looks like he may need time at Triple-A to begin the season.
Chargois gave up a run with two hits over one inning in his spring debut Saturday.
Chargois will compete for a bullpen role this spring. He had a 1.29 ERA with 41 strikeouts against just eight walks in 35.0 innings last year at Triple-A, but struggled in the majors with a 4.70 ERA and ugly 17:12 K:BB ratio. With a high 90s fastball and strong strikeout rate (10.5 K/9 at Triple-A), Chargois could be a dark horse candidate to take over the closer role if Brandon Kintzler struggles and Glen Perkins fails to return from injury.
