Farrell will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Farrell has a 1.31 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB across 20.2 innings this season, and he'll make his first start of the campaign Sunday with the Twins employing a bullpen game. The 30-year-old covered a season-high 2.1 frames his last time out Monday and shouldn't be expected to go much deeper than that in Toronto.
Farrell (oblique) was activated from the 60-day injured list Sunday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Farrell is back in Minnesota's bullpen after an oblique strain sidelined him since late June. The righty was an effective relief option in 13 games before getting injured, as he posted a 1.76 ERA and 17:6 K:BB in 15.1 innings. He takes the roster spot of Andrew Albers, whom the Twins optioned Sunday.
Farrell (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. The move clears room on the 40-man roster for the Twins to select Ian Gibaut's contract. It won't affect Farrell's timeline, as he's already been out for more than 60 days with an oblique strain. He could be back fairly soon, as he's already made a pair of rehab appearances.
Farrell (oblique) struck out three of the four batters he faced and walked the other in his first rehab appearance Sunday with Triple-A St. Paul. Farrell, who is working his way back from an oblique strain, needed 18 pitches to retire the side in what marked his first appearance at any level since June 22. He'll likely make at least one or two more appearances with St. Paul before the Twins reinstate him from the 10-day injured list.
Farrell (oblique) is expected to throw a light bullpen session Aug. 9, MLB.com reports. Farrell landed on the injured list June 25 and hadn't made much progress in his recovery. His upcoming bullpen session suggests he could return later this season.
