De Vries among Twins arms ready for rehabs

De Vries among Twins arms ready for rehabs


KANSAS CITY -- Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony gave updates on several of the club's injured starting pitchers on Tuesday.

Right-hander Cole De Vries, who was set to be a part of Minnesota's rotation to open the year but has battled through a right elbow injury, is set to rehab with Class A Fort Myers. He'll join the team on Wednesday and will start in a doubleheader on Sunday. De Vries posted a 4.11 ERA in 17 appearances with the Twins last year, and tossed three scoreless innings with the Gulf Coast League Twins on Monday.

Right-hander Alex Meyer, who was acquired in the trade that sent Denard Span to the Nationals, is set to make a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League. Meyer, ranked as the club's No. 3 overall prospect according to MLB.com, will pitch two innings on Friday. He's been out of action at Double-A New Britain since early June with a right shoulder strain.

Left-hander Pedro Hernandez is also set to join Meyer in the Gulf Coast League and will throw three innings on Friday. Hernandez, who has pitched in nine games for the Twins this year with a 5.54 ERA, has been on the disabled list with a strained left forearm at Triple-A Rochester since early July.

"These guys are now getting back into games so hopefully they're on track to get back with their clubs and get going again," Antony said.
