Lucas French, who logged MLB time with the
Tigers and Mariners, is working his way
back up the chain
The minor league moves continue in the Twins organization. It was just announced that Rock Cats lefty starter Lucas French has been promoted to AAA Rochester Red Wings. This, as with the other recent moves, is hardly surprising. French, who has major league experience, dominated at AA this spring, going 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 30 innings pitched. In his month with the Rock Cats, French struck out 18 and walked 12, giving up 17 hits along the way. Presumably, new Rock Cat starer BJ Hermsen will replace French in the Cats' rotation.
Here's a release announcing the move.
Congratulations to Lucas!
