The Minnesota Twins recalled lefty Glen Perkins from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, giving the team much needed depth in the bullpen. To make room for Perkins, the Twins sent third catcher Chris Heintz to Rochester. Perkins is slated to be used out of the bullpen.

The Minnesota Twins recalled left-hander Glen Perkins on Wednesday, giving them some relief in a tired bullpen. To make room for Perkins, the Twins sent third catcher Chris Heintz to Triple-A Rochester. Perkins pitched one game for Rochester before being recalled, tossing six innings of one-run ball.

Juan Rincon (death in the family) and Jesse Crain are unavailable for the Twins, so Perkins’ arrival should take some of the pressure off guys like Pat Neshek, and Dennys Reyes. Perkins appeared in four games for the Twins in 2006, allowing one earned run in 5.2 innings pitched out of the bullpen.

Perkins is a hometown boy, playing his high school ball in Minnesota, and also playing his college at the University of Minnesota. He is the top left-handed pitching prospect in the Twins organization. During his minor league career, Perkins posted a 14-19, compiling a 3.36 earned run average coming into the 2006 season.

Perkins was originally drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the third round of the 2004 draft.
