Wimmers cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Wimmers was designated for assignment Friday after allowing four earned runs over 7.1 innings of relief with the Twins this season. No other teams showed interest in the 28-year-old, so he'll look to get into form with Rochester moving forward.
The Twins designated Wimmers for assignment Friday. The right-hander absorbed a 4.91 ERA in 7.1 innings with Minnesota this year and fared marginally better with a 3.94 in 16 innings for Triple-A Rochester. Wimmers may stick around as a minor-league depth piece, though the 28-year-old still may find a more useful role with a pitching-needy organization.
Wimmers was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Indians. Wimmers has given up three runs in 5.2 innings in the majors this season with an ugly 6:5 K:BB, but he'll add a fresh arm in the bullpen. It's not clear if he'll stay on the roster after the doubleheader.
Wimmers has been sent down to Triple-A Rochester, Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Wimmers allowed a run on three hits and two walks over 1.1 innings in Monday's brutal loss to the Mariners, bumping his ERA up to 4.76. With the Twins' bullpen spent after having to throw a combined 5.1 innings Monday night, Wimmers was the casualty. The club will announce a corresponding move Tuesday.
Wimmers has been recalled from Triple-A Rochester, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Wimmers struggled at the start of the season with a 5.73 ERA with a 9:7 K:BB in his first 11 innings. However, he's given up just two runs in nine innings in May with a 7:3 K:BB. He'll get a shot at middle relief as the Twins look for answers with a beleaguered bullpen.
