Twins call up 2010 1st-round pick Alex Wimmers

TORONTO (AP) The Minnesota Twins have selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Alex Wimmers from Triple-A Rochester, promoting their 2010 first-round draft pick to the major leagues for the first time.

The move was made Friday before the game at Toronto.

Wimmers and left-hander Andrew Albers are taking the place on the staff of starters Jose Berrios and Tyler Duffey, who were sent to Rochester after the game Thursday. The rotation for next week is up in the air.
