The Twins jerseys also recalled cheap Kennys Vargas jersey from Triple A Rochester to fill cheap Jorge Polanco jersey spot on the 25 man active roster. Polanco left Tuesday to travel to the Dominican Republic after the death of his grandfather.
Twins jerseys manager Paul Molitor said Heston would be in uniform for Wednesday game but was unlikely to pitch unless the game went into extra innings.

night, during the game, we were watching it unfold and the discussions took place after the game about trying to replenish, if you will, Molitor said. He comes in here as a guy that can give us some length, and he got some experience. a member of the San Francisco Giants jerseys rotation in 2015, Heston went 12 11 with a 3.95 earned run average and 141 strikeouts in 177 2/3 innings pitched. The right hander threw a no hitter against the Mets jerseys almost two years ago on June 9, 2015.

Santiago has been struggling. After starting the season 4 1, he is 0 5 with a 9.93 ERA over his past six starts.
The 29 year old said he had a hard time getting loose before his start Tuesday. He gave up five runs and lasted just 2 2/3 innings.
think it anything major, Molitor said. obviously, between the big picture we got a lot of the season to go and the fact that you have the 10 day DL at your disposal, it the right thing to try to get him back to 100 percent. said he would return to Minnesota on Wednesday or Thursday and undergo tests on his throwing shoulder. He called the disabled list sting and said he agreed to it after talking with coaches.
think I could go out there and throw, Santiago said. I think it was, just take a step back and not let it get any worse. arrival provides depth for Minnesota with Polanco away. In 24 games with the Twins jerseys earlier this season, Vargas batted .258 with five home runs and 19 runs batted in. He was optioned back to Rochester on May 29 to make room for an emergency pitcher and was 4 for 22 (.182) with a home run and three RBIs in seven games with the Red Wings.
praying for (Polanco) and hoping that everything goes all right for him, Vargas said through a translator. get a chance to come back here and do what I did and produce like I did before I got sent down, that what I here for. said Heston is a possibility to fill Santiago scheduled start in San Francisco on Sunday. Minnesota also might look to call up a pitcher for the final game of the series against the Giants jerseys.
