Twins pull RHP Parker off paternity list, option SmeltzerReuters | Updated: 13-07-2019 00:29 IST | Created: 13-07-2019 00:29 IST
The Minnesota Twins reinstated right-hander Blake Parker from the paternity list on Friday, one week after he left the team to be with his wife Jordan. In a corresponding move, the Twins optioned left-hander Devin Smeltzer to Triple-A Rochester ahead of Friday's game against the Indians in Cleveland.
Smeltzer provided long relief in Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers, giving up one run on five hits over 4 1/3 innings. Parker has 10 saves and a 3.77 ERA this season, with 29 strikeouts over 31 innings.
