    • Twins' Chris Heston: Activated from minor-league DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heston (shoulder) was activated from the 7-day DL at Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. He pitched five innings for the Twins' GCL team on Monday, clearing the final hurdle on his road back from a bout of shoulder tendinitis. Heston has posted a 7.63 ERA with Rochester, and he's mostly struggled with other affiliates this season. Further, the 29-year-old is not on the 40-man roster, so he will need to finish strong over the rest of August to have a chance at a September callup.

    • Twins' Chris Heston: Lands on disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heston will head to the minor-league DL with right shoulder tendinitis, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports. Heston made just one appearance with the Twins after getting claimed by the team in early June. Since then, the 29-year-old has been sent down, DFA'd and roughed up a few times with Triple-A Rochester. It is unlikely that Heston resurfaces in the majors this season, and he'll be out for the foreseeable future while he recovers from this injury.

    • Twins' Chris Heston: Cast off 40-man roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heston was designated for assignment Friday. Heston was originally thought to be an option to make a spot start in Saturday's doubleheader with the Indians, but after being bypassed for the start by Adam Wilk, Heston will end up being the roster casualty to allow Wilk to make said start. Heston has plenty of MLB experience to his name, which could make him an attractive option to other teams while he's exposed to waivers.

    • Heston could be recalled to start one game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Indians, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Heston, acquired on a recent waiver claim, was sent back to the minors on Monday, but he could head back to the big leagues to start Saturday now that Hector Santiago (shoulder) is unlikely to be ready to go by then. The right-hander has spent much of his career as a starter and is only a couple years removed from a season where he posted a 3.95 ERA in the Giants' rotation.

    • Twins' Chris Heston: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heston was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. After being claimed off waivers last week, Heston made his Twins debut Sunday against the Giants, tossing a scoreless inning in relief. Since the Twins have a few bullpen arms capable of covering multiple innings when necessary, the team didn't have a need to carry an extra long reliever, so Heston will head back to the minors to make room for shortstop Jorge Polanco (personal), who was activated from the bereavement list Monday in a corresponding move.
