Twins Outright Pedro Hernandez

Here are today's outright assignments and minor moves from around the league…

  • Twins left-hander Pedro Hernandez has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Rochester, according to the team's transactions page. Hernandez, 24, was one of two players acquired from the White Sox in exchange for Francisco Liriano in a July 2012 trade that was mostly a salary dump. Hernandez pitched 56 2/3 innings for Minnesota this year, posting an unsightly 6.83 ERA with 4.6 K/9, 3.7 BB/9 and a 39.9 percent ground-ball rate. His 4.50 ERA, 6.5 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in 45 Triple-A innings look better than his big league numbers.
