Duensing To Represent USA In IBAF World Cup
Brian Duensing will be the only Twins farm hand to play for Team USA in the IBAF World Cup in Taiwan in November, after his stint with the Phoenix Desert Dogs in the Arizona Fall League. During the 2007 season, Duensing has become a top left-handed pitching prospect in the Twins organization, and is likely to make his Major League Debut at some point during the 2008 season.Duensing, who played his college ball at the University of Nebraska, began the 2007 season with the New Britain Rock Cats, but his play, coupled with some promotions, landed him early in Rochester. For New Britain, Duensing only made nine starts, but had an earned run average under 3.00. He also won four of his five decisions, and was ready when the Twins called his number for a promotion to Triple-A.For the Red Wings, Duensing was a top starter in the International League. Duensing won an incredible 11 games for the Red Wings, and lost only five. He made 19 starts, tossing three complete games, and had a shutout.Overall, Duensing won 15 games, and with his time in Arizona and in Taiwan, could be a 20-game winner this season.The IBAF World Cup runs from November 6 to the 18th, and will be managed by former New York Mets Manager Davey Johnson. The USA opens their slate against Mexico on November 7.
