OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have recalled rookie Liam Hendriks from Triple-A Rochester to take the rotation spot opened when fellow right-hander Nick Blackburn was demoted to the minor league club.

The Twins announced Hendriks will start Wednesday in Oakland, where Blackburn was originally scheduled to face the Athletics.

Hendriks made eight starts over two previous stints this season with the Twins, but only two of them lasted at least six innings with three runs allowed or fewer. His ERA is 7.04, with 10 home runs surrendered in 38 1-3 innings. The 23-year-old Australian had a 6.17 ERA over four starts in 2011 with the Twins.

That’s a stark contrast from the way he’s pitched for the Red Wings. He’s 9-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 16 starts.
