Mulvey recalled; Morales sent to minors
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have recalled right-hander Kevin Mulvey from Triple-A Rochester to add some depth to their bullpen.
The Twins have carried 11 pitchers and three catchers for the last few weeks. But manager Ron Gardenhire said before the break that he would need some help for his tiring bullpen. The Twins could also make a trade to bring in a more experienced reliever, but for now Mulvey will try to fill the void.
To make room, the Twins optioned third catcher Jose Morales to Rochester. He hit .343 in 32 games with the Twins.
