The veteran right-hander had been pitching for Somerset in the independent Atlantic League where he registered a 4.71 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 13/3 K/BB ratio across 21 innings. He hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2014 and is nothing more than a minor league depth signing at this point. May 20 - 9:32 AM

Logan Darnell is battling pneumonia and is unlikely to pitch this month.

Darnell contracted the illness nearly a week after being promoted earlier this month and was sent for an X-ray when he wasn't improving. "It got real bad," Darnell said. "On the X-ray, my whole right lung was covered (in fluids)." The lefty has lost 17 pounds due to the illness. He won't make an appearance for the Twins but plans to play winter ball in Venezuela.

Logan Darnell pitched erratically in allowing four runs in four innings against the White Sox on Friday

Last time out, the White Sox knocked him for seven runs, so technically this four-run jaunt was an improvement. Darnell walked four, struck out four and allowed five hits. He has an 8.25 ERA. He is not on the fantasy radar.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 01:01:00 AM

Logan Darnell was torched for seven runs in five innings Saturday as the Twins fell to the White Sox.

Darnell struck out seven and didn't allow a walk, but the Chicago offense got to him for 11 hits -- including a homer and three doubles. Darnell wasn't blowing batters away at Triple-A Rochester and is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance at any point this season.

Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

He will draw the start on Saturday against the White Sox. The 25-year-old southpaw sports a 3.43 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 73/40 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings at Rochester this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
