Enns cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester.
Enns was designated for assignment on May 1, but he garnered no interest on the waiver wire after his middling start to the season with the Red Wings (4.50 ERA, 11:11 K:BB in 20 innings pitched). He'll continue to serve as organizational depth moving forward.
Enns was designated for assignment by the Twins on Tuesday.
The Twins needed a 40-man roster spot for Gregorio Petit to join the big-league club, and Enns wound up being the roster casualty. The southpaw appeared in the big leagues last season, but in four starts at Triple-A this year, he produced a 4.50 ERA and walked as many batters as he struck out. He'll now be exposed to waivers.
The Twins optioned Enns to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.
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 a need 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 with 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.
Twins manager Paul Molitor said Tuesday that no timetable has been established for Enns (shoulder) to resume throwing, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
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.
Enns (shoulder) had an injection to relieve inflammation Friday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Enns was placed on the disabled list Thursday, and Friday received the shot to help the healing process in his pitching shoulder. It is a step in the right direction, but a timetable can't be established for his return until he has undergone more tests.
Enns was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left shoulder strain prior to Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Enns will head to the disabled list for the second time this season after missing over two months with a similar shoulder strain during his time in the Yankees organization. Since coming over to the the Twins in the Jaime Garcia trade right before the deadline, he's made two appearances with the club, including a start against the Brewers last Thursday. The southpaw first recognized an issue Wednesday night and will undergo tests in the immediate future to determine the severity of the injury and figure out a plan moving forward.
Enns is available to pitch out of the bullpen Tuesday, though he is still scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
If he isn't used in relief Tuesday, he'll simply throw his normal 25-30 pitch between-starts bullpen Wednesday, keeping him in line for Saturday. The 26-year-old allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and one walk through 2.1 innings in his major-league debut.
Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Enns will make his next start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Enns lasted just 2.1 innings in his MLB debut Friday against the Brewers, surrendering two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk, but the Twins will give him a chance at redemption during the upcoming week. Molitor said that Enns would be available out of the bullpen Sunday against the Tigers, but if he ends up going unused, he'll likely throw a side session Thursday before rejoining the rotation over the weekend. Enns could head back to Triple-A Rochester following the Saturday start, as both Hector Santiago (back) and Adalberto Mejia (biceps) seem to be nearing returns from the disabled list and could immediately reclaim rotation spots upon their activations.
Enns will receive another start with Minnesota next week, either Wednesday against the Indians or Saturday versus Arizona, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.
Enns was a little shaky during his major-league debut against Milwaukee on Thursday, only lasting 2.1 innings but escaping with just one earned run off five hits and a walk. The 26-year-old was recently acquired by the Twins in the Jaime Garcia deal, and had been tearing it up at the Triple-A level prior to his promotion. Manager Paul Molitor will likely announce the date for his next outing by the end of this weekend.
Enns lasted just 2.1 innings in his major league debut Thursday against the Brewers, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits with one walk and no strikeouts.
Enns gave up a solo homer in the second, then got pulled with one out in the third after surrendering two singles and a bases-loaded walk following an error. Luckily for him, Alan Busenitz came out of the bullpen and induced a double play to prevent any inherited runners from scoring. The recent acquisition from the Yankees is not guaranteed another turn in the rotation, but his next start would fall Wednesday against Cleveland should the team opt to give him another shot.
Enns was recalled from Triple-A Rochester and confirmed as the starting pitcher for Thursday's series finale against the Brewers.
Enns is set to make his major-league debut less than two weeks after being acquired from the Yankees. The 26-year-old has pitched well at Triple-A over the past two seasons -- compiling a shiny 1.88 ERA through 110.1 innings -- though he's averaged just 7.4 K/9 during that time. With Hector Santiago (back) nearing a return and Adalberto Mejia (biceps) not expected to be sidelined very long, this could be Enns' only start for the big club before being sent back to the minors. In order to accommodate for his arrival, Kennys Vargas was optioned to Triple-A while Kyle Gibson's scheduled start was pushed back to Friday.
Enns will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Enns was one of two players acquired from the Yankees last month in the Jaime Garcia trade. He's made one start for Rochester, allowing two runs and striking out four through six innings of work. It's unclear when his debut will be or how he will be used, but it seems likely that he'll fill in for either Adalberto Mejia (biceps) or Hector Santiago (back) in the Twins' starting rotation.
Enns and minor-league pitcher Zack Littell were traded to the Twins on Sunday in exchange for Jaime Garcia and cash considerations, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
The 26-year-old Enns is the lesser of the two prospects the Twins are getting back in the deal, but has more proximity to the majors as a Triple-A arm who already possesses a 40-man roster spot. While Enns isn't viewed as a premium arm, he's managed to deliver strong results throughout his minor-league career, including a 2.29 ERA and 1.02 WHIP to go with 37 strikeouts over 39.1 innings (seven starts) with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He's likely to report to the Twins' Triple-A affiliate at Rochester initially, but could receive a look with the big club as a spot starter or long man out of the bullpen in the second half.
Enns has made two appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since being activated off the disabled list in June, allowing three runs over 11 innings.
Enns made two starts in April before being sent to the DL and missing two and a half months of action with a shoulder strain. The 26-year-old lefty posted an impressive 1.52 ERA in 65 innings at Triple-A last season, so if he continues that success again this year he could see a call-up at some point to help out the big-league club's bullpen.
Enns was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.
Enns has shot through the organizational ranks the last few seasons and put together an incredible 2016 campaign (1.73 ERA, 124 strikeouts in 135 innings in 26 appearances at both Double-A and Triple-A) that put him on the Yankees' radar. Despite that, the lefty faced an uphill battle to break camp with the team and a rocky spring training did him in. The 25-year-old will likely work out of the Triple-A rotation and could be in line for his first taste of the big leagues at some point in 2017.
Enns was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster Friday.
Although Enns allowed significantly more contact after moving up to Triple-A -- his strikeout rate fell by nearly three per nine -- he was even better in terms of run prevention, and that's saying something. He had a 1.93 ERA with Double-A Trenton and a 1.52 mark with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He moved to the bullpen for his final four appearances but will presumably continue his development as a starter in 2017.
