Enns was one of six Twins sent back to minor-league camp Wednesday, with fellow pitcher Felix Jorge also set to join him in Rochester to begin the campaign. With the Twins bolstering their rotation depth earlier this spring with the acquisition of Jake Odorizzi and Ervin Santana (finger) on the mend, Enns, who appeared in two games (one start) with the big club last season, doesn't have an easy path back to Minnesota even if he excels with Rochester early on this season. At this point, Phil Hughes, Anibal Sanchez, Tyler Duffey and Aaron Slegers probably all rank ahead of Enns as back-end rotation options should injuries open up another spot on the staff.
Enns (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Double-A Chattanooga on Tuesday.
Enns, who landed on the disabled list Aug. 17 with shoulder inflammation, is good to go after getting through a pair of minor-league rehab outings with Triple-A Rochester. With Hector Santiago (back) nearing a return to the rotation and a scheduled off day Monday, the Twins decided Enns wasn't needed in the big-league rotation for the time being, opting to send him to Chattanooga to pitch in the minor-league playoffs instead. He'll remain an option to start for the Twins in September should an opportunity arise.
Enns (shoulder) will make a two-inning rehab start with Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Enns will be on a strict pitch count, and will only throw around 30-to-35 pitches during his first game back on a mound since Aug. 15. The left-hander was able to toss a bullpen this past Sunday after receiving a cortisone injection, and hasn't experienced any shoulder problems since. He will be reevaluated following Friday's outing.
Enns (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session prior to Sunday's game against Toronto, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Enns was placed on the 10-day DL with inflammation in his left shoulder following a brief start against the Indians on Aug. 15. The southpaw was treated with a cortisone shot Friday, which seems to have helped cease some of the inflammation, allowing the club to feel comfortable giving him time on the mound. Sunday's session will determine the next step for Enns moving forward.
Enns landed on the 10-day disabled list following his Aug. 15 appearance with an inflamed shoulder, which the Twins decided to treat with a cortisone shot. It sounds like the rookie is still waiting for the inflammation to calm down, so until he shows improvement on that front, Enns' activity could be limited. The 26-year-old left-hander isn't a safe bet to reclaim a rotation spot once he's activated from the DL.
