Lohse Optioned to Rochester

Can I get a "hallelujah"?

Minneapolis, MN– The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have optioned righthanded pitcher Kyle Lohse to Rochester (AAA, International League). In eight starts this season, Lohse was 2-4, 8.92 (38.1 ip, 38 er), allowing 57 hits with 19 walks and 24 strikeouts.

To replace Lohse on the 25-man roster, the Twins have recalled righthanded pitcher Boof Bonser from Rochester.

Bonser will meet the team in Milwaukee on Friday and is scheduled to make his Major League debut as the starting pitcher on Sunday.

It's almost to the point where I feel bad for the Twins. Then I look at my Jack Morris commemorative plates and remember how the Twins and Blue Jays stole my innocence. Bwah hahahaha.
