Twins minor-league pitching: The Sunday report

Posted by: Howard Sinker Updated: May 5, 2013 - 8:24 PM

As Phil Miller pointed out in his pregame blog from Cleveland, the Twins had an interesting group of pitchers take the mound throughout their minor-league system on Sunday afternoon.

For Class AAA  Rochester, Samuel Deduno was making his first appearance after suffering a groin injury while pitching in the World Baseball Classic. There's a good chance that, if healthy, Deduno would be filling a spot in the Twins rotation already. In five innings against Columbus, Deduno gave up an unearned run on five singles and four walks in a 3-2 loss. He also struck out four.

Boxscore.

For Class AA New Britain, Alex Meyer -- the pitcher acquired in the trade that sent Denard Span to Washington -- struggled for the second consecutive time. In a 6-5 loss to Portland, Meyer gave up five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings. After four solid starts to open the season (four runs allowed in 22 innings), the 6-foot-9 Meyer has given up right earned runs in 10 2/3 innings in his last two starts.

Boxscore.

For Class A Fort Myers, Cole De Vries made a rehab start and gave up two runs (one earned) on six hits in four innings. He didn't walk anyone in the Miracle's 8-2 loss to Tampa.

Boxscore.

For Class A Cedar Rapids, Jose Berrios, the sandwich pick between the first and second rounds of last summer's amateur draft, improved his record to 3-0 for the Kernels in an 8-4 victory at South Bend. He gave up two runs on six hits in six innings, striking out eight and walking none. For the season, Berrios has struck out 21 and walked two in 17 2/3 innings.

Boxscore.

One more thing, if you want to know what the cool kids are wearing in Fort Myers, it's this. And their parents are wearing this.
