Ryan Pressly left Saturday's game against the Royals with a high lat strain.

Twins recalled RHP Ryan Pressly from Triple-A Rochester.

Twins optioned RHP Ryan Pressly to Triple-A Rochester.

The 26-year-old had been expected to earn a spot in the Opening Day bullpen as a middle reliever after posting a 2.86 ERA in 28 1/3 innings with the club in 2014. It should only be a matter of time before he gets another shot with the Twins.

Pressly has registered a promising 2.98 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 63/21 K/BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A. He should do well in a middle relief role.

Ryan Pressly (shoulder) expects to be available out of the bullpen Wednesday.

Pressly retired two of the five batters he faced before exiting the mound with the trainer. It's not clear what malady he's dealing with, but the Twins should update his status after the game.

Ryan Pressly allowed a run over two mop-up innings in Saturday's 12-5 loss against the Red Sox.

The Twins plucked Pressly from the Red Sox with the fourth pick in last winter's Rule 5 Draft. He posted a 5.38 ERA in 103 2/3 innings last season between High- and Double-A, but has been a pleasant low-leverage surprise for the Twins thus far, logging a 1.83 ERA and 1.42 WHIP over 19 2/3 innings. His peripherals aren't good -- including a 13/10 K/BB rate -- and his ERA won't end anywhere close to where it is now, but owners in extremely deep AL-only leagues may want to take a look if they need an injury replacement in the 'pen.
Sun, May 19, 2013 03:46:00 AM

Rule 5 pick Ryan Pressly has all but locked up a spot in the Twins' Opening Day bullpen.

Pressly posted a 5.38 ERA in 103 2/3 innings last season between High- and Double-A, but he's impressed the Twins with a 0.82 ERA and 0.82 WHIP over eight spring appearances. ‘‘We like him. We like him a lot,’’ manager Ron Gardenhire said. ‘‘He’s throwing the ball well. Good angle, nice little breaking ball, good velocity.’’ Gardy added that Pressly wouldn't be babied just because he has only 14 appearances above A-ball. ‘‘We think he can pitch now.’’ Gardenhire said. ‘‘Not for the future.’’

Twins selected RHP Ryan Pressly from the Red Sox with the fourth pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft.

Pressly had an uninspiring 5.38 ERA in 103 2/3 innings this past season between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. He seems doubtful to stick with Minnesota.
