According to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, Class AAA reliever Bobby Keppel was told after last night’s doubleheader that he is being promoted to the Twins. (See bottom of this game story.)

I’d heard Sunday that there was a good chance Keppel would be joining the Twins before Tuesday’s game in Milwaukee but wondered if the injury situation (Justin Morneau, Nick Punto, etc.) clouded the issue.

Not sure what the corresponding roster move will be, or if the Twins will even announce it today. I will post an update here when I get one. They could cut ties with Sean Henn or Luis Ayala, although they also have been going with an 11-man pitching staff and could go back to 12 if they demote a position player or need to put someone on the DL.
