Slowey and Blackburn

The Minnesota Twins announced today after the loss that they have recalled Kevin Slowey from AAA Rochester, and that he will indeed pitch as thought on Tuesday against the Indians.

In addition to this, the Twins have purchased the contract of Nick Blackburn from AAA Rochester, and he is expected to join the team as well. Blackburn is somewhat of a surprise given the fact that he is on the Fall League roster. He will wear number 53 when he arrives.

The Twins are still expected to call up more people after the Red Wings final game tomorrow. We can expect Lew Ford, Jose Morales and possibly one other person.
