Boshers was optioned to Triple-A Rochester following Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians. Boshers allowed two runs on two hits while only recording two outs during Game 1, so he'll swap places with Nik Turley for Game 2 as the Twins look to bring in a fresh bullpen arm. Boshers, who now owns a 5.16 ERA through 29.2 big-league innings this season, will likely be back with the Twins when rosters expand in September.
Boshers has struck out 21 with an ERA of 3.86 in 25.2 innings this season. Compared to 2016, the ERA is down from 4.25, but the peripherals suggest he's been significantly worse this season (4.59 FIP, 2.84 in 2016).
Boshers has an ERA of 2.77 with a WHIP of 1.31 in 13 innings since being brought to the majors at the end of May. It's been an impressive month for the left-handed reliever, who is being used as a long reliever in games that starters don't pitch very deep. Now in his third season, the biggest change for Boshers from his first two years has been his ability to strand runners. Overall, he has stranded 82.4 percent of batters who get on base in 2017 compared to the marks of 64.1 and 61.9 he had the prior two campaigns.
Boshers was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Boshers has already spent time with the Twins this season, compiling a 3.00 ERA and 1:1 K:BB across three innings of relief. The 29-year-old will offer another arm for a tired Twins bullpen, though he still likely won't see any high-leverage innings.
Boshers was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune reports. With Hector Santiago set to return form the bereavement list Wednesady, Boshers will head back to Triple-A Rochester. The 28-year-old has made two appearances with the Twins this season, giving up one earned run over three innings pitched.
