Beau Burrows optioned to Triple-A St. Paul, Griffin Jax added as 27th man
CHICAGO, IL – The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have reinstated left-handed pitcher Danny Coulombe from the Paternity List.
Coulombe and his wife, Lauren, recently welcomed their second son, Thomas. The southpaw had his contract selected from Triple-A St. Paul on June 25 and has appeared in six games (1 start) for the Twins this season, going 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA (8.0 IP, 1 ER), one walk and 11 strikeouts.
To make room for Coulombe on the 26-man roster, the Twins have optioned right-handed pitcher Beau Burrows to Triple-A St. Paul. Burrows, who was recalled on Saturday, made one scoreless appearance in the first game of that day’s doubleheader in Detroit, working 1.1 innings and allowing two hits while striking out one batter.
Additionally, the Twins will add right-handed pitcher Griffin Jax to the roster as the 27th man for today’s doubleheader. The 26-year-old has gone 1-1 with an 8.66 ERA (17.2 IP, 17 ER), eight walks and 14 strikeouts in five games (1 start) for the Twins this season. Jax will start game one today, making his second career major league start.
