Minnesota Twins Call Up Amsterdam Mohawks Alumni Logan Darnell

The Minnesota Twins have added former Amsterdam Mohawk ace Logan Darnell to their roster. Darnell, from the University of Kentucky, who called Amsterdam home in 2008 lead the Mohawks to a championship series appearance.  

That year Darnell went 3-0, with a 1.82 ERA and 33 strikeouts in 34 innings.  The sixth round draft pick also dazzled MLB scouts at the All Star game with a fastball that topped out at 95 MPH.

This year Darnell made four starts for "AAA" Rochester throwing  to a 1.69 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 21 innings.  "He was starting down there and was throwing the ball well.", said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.  "We need innings.  We have to have a guy up here that stretched out.  He can throw 100 pitched if we need it."

"It's definitely exciting.", stated Darnell.  "It's something you always look forward to as a baseball player.  When you're young you look forward to it and when your in the minors you're always pushing to get there."

The Mohawks will kick off the 2014 season on June 5, against the Newark Pilots.  Amsterdam is coming off back to back PGCBL championships and look to continue their high level of play along with another season full of fun for the entire family.
