MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will recall right-handed reliever Jim Hoey from Triple-A Rochester, filling the roster spot opened when Kevin Slowey was placed on the disabled list.

The Twins announced Thursday that Hoey would join the team for Friday’s game.

Hoey is a hard thrower in the middle innings, who reaches the upper 90 mph range with his fastball. In his first stint with the team, he posted a 9.72 ERA in 10 appearances with 15 hits and four walks in 8 1-3 innings.

The Twins wanted him to work on his control with Rochester, where he had a 1.54 ERA in 11 2-3 innings.

Slowey went to the DL Wednesday with an abdominal muscle strain. He will report Saturday to the team’s extended spring training program in Fort Myers, Fla., to continue his rehabilitation.
