Chargois (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Rochester and placed on the 60-day disabled list.
This is simply procedural, as the move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Michael Tonkin. Chargois is eligible for activation at any point, though a return this season seems highly unlikely seeing as he hasn't pitched since April due to an elbow issue.
Chargois will miss more time after being diagnosed with a stress reaction on the outside of his elbow, Darren Wolfson of ESPN Radio reports.
This is quite a blow for the right-hander, as he's been on the minor-league disabled list for a month and a half now after most people close to the situation thought it was a fairly minor injury. Chargois now sits without a timeline for return, although more information should be revealed once he gets back to throwing.
Chargois (elbow) is heading to Florida to continue rehabbing from an elbow impingement, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
MRI results on his elbow came back negative, so Chargois will head to extended spring training to continue his rehab process. Once he's finally healthy, the 26-year-old should be a candidate to be called up to the majors given his powerful fastball and strong strikeout rates (10.5 K/9 at Triple-A last season).
Chargois was placed on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Rochester due to an elbow impingement, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Should be a short-term situation," said Brad Steil, the Twins director of minor league operations.
Chargois has thrown just 2.1 innings this season as he missed time with a strained shoulder muscle. He's a candidate to be called up to the majors when healthy due to a fastball that can reach the high 90s and strong strikeout rates (10.5 K/9 last year at Triple-A).
Chargois was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Chargois was competing for one of the Twins' final bullpen spots this spring, but his struggles assured that he would be sent down to Triple-A to begin the season. The 26-year-old allowed eight runs over 8.1 innings in camp, though his high-power arm did manage to strike out eight batters as well. He posted a 1.29 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 35.0 innings at Triple-A Rochester last year, and if he's able to show that stuff again to start 2017, it's very possible he'll spend some time in the Twins' bullpen.
