Jim Mandelaro of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle has sent word that the Twins have promoted righthander Rob Delaney to Class AAA Rochester. In 26 games, Delaney was 1-1 with a 2.00 ERA. In 36 innings, he walked six, struck out 40 and gave up 32 hits. Opponents were batting .242 against him.
Delaney took part in his first major league spring training camp this year, giving up two runs in four innings of work.
A spot for Delaney opened up when lefthander Mike Gosling took advantage of an out clause in his contract and got his release. He was the classic vulture, going 7-1 with a 4.37 ERA in 21 games -all in relief. He was tied for the international league lead in wins.
