Patrick Neshek was promoted to the Minnesota Twins on Thursday, in a move that was a long time coming. He has been one of the more dominating relief pitchers in Minor League Baseball for the past two seasons, and now brings that funky delivery to Minnesota. Here is a look at the young right-hander, with links to a few of his stories.

The Twins recalled Patrick Neshek from the Rochester Red Wings on Thursday, a day after demoting Boof Bonser to the Triple-A team.  Neshek has been one of the more dominating closers in Minor League Baseball for the past two seasons, and his call-up to the big leagues is well deserved.  The 25-year old right-hander will be the 27th Minnesota native to appear in a game for the Twins when he makes his Major League debut.

A sixth round pick in the 2002 draft, the Twins drafted Neshek out of Butler University.  After a standout collegiate career, Neshek signed with the Twins and has been on a pretty steady track the Major League ever since.  This season, he had posted a 1.95 earned run average for the Red Wings, and notched 14 saves.
