We haven’t been told yet, but Kevin Slowey has been told that he’s been promoted to the majors and will start on Friday in Oakland.
“I’m certainly elated,” Slowey told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle a little while ago. “It’s what you dream of, to pitch at the highest level. It’s kind of surreal. I hope it doesn’t knock me over on Friday.”
Slowey last pitched on Friday, so he’ll be well rested to face the A’s.
For the Seths of the world, lefty Brian Duensing has been promoted form Class AA New Britain to replace Slowey in the Rochester rotation.
The Twins will not announce who will go down to make room for Slowey until after Wednesday’s game.
