DETROIT -- Erik Johnson’s second round of auditions continues to go well.
CLEVELAND — David Robertson stepped off the pitching rubber, fired a strike to first base and exhaled.
Trevor Plouffe got the scoring started and finished it off as well on Friday night as he hit two home runs and drove in three runs in the Twins 6-2 win over the White Sox at U.S.
MINNEAPOLIS -- His placement on revocable waivers didn’t catch White Sox closer David Robertson by surprise.
Almost everyone lands on the waiver wire in August.
The confidence he could handle back-to-back games has been there, but Nate Jones’ manager may have benefitted more from the performance than his pitcher.
