Minnesota Twins Designate Pitcher For Assignment

Austin Davis' time with the Minnesota Twins seems to be over after only two appearances, as the 29-year-old has been designated for assignment.

Davis' removal from the Twins' 40-man roster comes after two rough outings for them. In 1.2 innings pitched, he allowed three earned runs, which equates to a 16.20 ERA. Apparently, this was enough for the Twins to part ways with him, so now he is heading right back to the waiver wire.

The Twins just claimed Davis off of waivers on August 31st from the Boston Red Sox. Given the fact that he was just on the Red Sox, it would not be too surprising to see them bring him back and bury him in the minors. In 52 games this season, he has a 2-1 record to go along with a 5.79 ERA.
