Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Optioned to Triple-A
Mejia was optioned Tuesday to Triple-A Rochester.
Mejia entered spring training with a good shot at a spot in the rotation, but his prospects quickly changed after the Twins traded for Jake Odorizzi and signed Lance Lynn. With Mejia sent to Triple-A, it looks like Phil Hughes will begin the season as the No. 5 starter. However, Hughes could move to the bullpen a few weeks later once Ervin Santana returns from a finger injury. Mejia will likely be the first starter recalled from Triple-A if there's an opening in the major-league rotation early on in the campaign.
