Jorge was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after he struggled in his second career start. Jorge gave up six runs and three home runs over 2.2 innings, but got a no-decision in Friday's win over Baltimore.
Jorge gave up three runs and seven hits over five innings in his first start, but struggled in his second outing. Still, he could get another shot later in July as the Twins continue to seek any production at the back end of their rotation.
Jorge is expected to be recalled from Double-A Chattanooga to start Friday's game against the Orioles, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Jorge held his own in a spot start against the Royals over the weekend, prompting the Twins to give him another turn in the rotation for the injured Hector Santiago (back). He allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings of work to earn the win in his MLB debut. It's unclear how long he'll remain in the rotation at this point, but he could stick around if he pitches well given the inconsistency at the back end of the Twins' rotation.
Jorge was optioned to Double-A Chattanooga on Sunday, MLB.com reports.
Jorge impressed in his big-league debut during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals, tossing five innings and giving up three runs to earn the win. Since the Twins only needed him as a sixth starter due to the heavy schedule over the past week, Jorge won't stick around in the rotation, but his performance Saturday could make him the top candidate for a promotion the next time a new starter is required.
Jorge gave up three runs and seven hits over five innings with two strikeouts and one walk in Saturday's win over Kansas City in the second game of a doubleheader. Jorge became the first Twins pitcher to earn a win in his big league debut since 2013, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Jorge gave up a two-run home run in the first inning but then settled down. It wasn't a great performance but may be enough to give him another shot at the rotation. He may be sent down shortly as he was called up for the doubleheader. With the Twins desperate for any production at the back end of their rotation, Jorge could be called back up soon.
