Dinkelman, Dumatrait outrighted to Triple-A Rochester

MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins announced today that they outrighted infielder/outfielder Brian Dinkelman and left-handed pitcher Phil Dumatrait to Triple-A Rochester.

As a result of the roster moves, the Twins have 36 players on their 40-man roster. They also outrighted catcher Rene Rivera, infielder Matt Tolbert, outfielder Jason Repko, and right-hander Anthony Slama to Triple-A Rochester last week while reinstating right-hander Nick Blackburn (forearm surgery) and second baseman Alexi Casilla (right hamstring strain) from the 60-day disabled list.

Dinkelman, 27, played in 23 games with the Twins, batting .301 with a .346 on-base percentage and .315 slugging percentage. Dinkelman, who saw time at second base and both corner outfield positions, also had four RBIs and two stolen bases.

He was originally called up on June 3, but was outrighted to Triple-A on June 17 to make room for catcher Joe Mauer, who was activated from the 60-day DL. Dinkelman was called up for a second time on Sept. 5 after hitting .243/.316/.324 with three homers, 41 RBIs and seven stolen bases in 127 games with Rochester.

Dumatrait, 30, spent most of the season with the Twins, posting a 3.92 ERA in 45 appearances. The left-hander struck out 29 and walked 25 while allowing seven homers in 41 1/3 innings. He also made 15 appearances with Rochester, posting a 1.15 ERA with 12 strikeouts and 11 walks in 15 2/3 innings before being recalled on May 16.



Just wanted to let you know about the web site “The Baseball Cube” (http://www.thebaseballcube.com)

We have player profiles on all Twins players including College, Minor League and MLB stats.

1. Could you possibly add us a link on your blog?
2. Please consider linking to the site when referring to Minor League players (or Major Leaguers).

I’ll reference your site on TBC on Twins pages if I see referrals!
