When the Twins decided to send catcher Josmil Pinto to Class AAA to get more at-bats, they considered bringing Chris Herrmann back for a third stint behind Kurt Suzuki this season. But he missed a week because of a wrist injury, and Eric Fryer is considered a better defensive player.
“I try to go out there, call a good game, and for the most part, just keep everything going in the right direction,” Fryer said. “I’ll try to get up to speed as quick as possible with Kurt — what’s working, what to look for with guys as far as mechanics.”
Lefthanded reliever Matt Hoffman was released by Rochester on Friday, about two weeks before he planned to opt out of his contract on July 1.
The Twins needed a roster spot in order to activate Herrmann, and Hoffman’s contract gave him the option of becoming a free agent next month if he wasn’t in the majors, an option he told the Twins he planned to exercise.
