Doug Bernier Back in the Major Leagues

Recommended Posts


Doug Bernier was called up by the Minnesota Twins to the major league club during the all-star break.  The Twins demoted 3 players to the minor leagues prior to the all-star break, and have holes at several positions (including the possibility that they may trade Justin Morneau for prospects, so there is definitely an opportunity for a utility player like Doug with the Twins.


I remember in 2008 when he was called up to the Rockies, but had no idea he only played in 2 games, going 0-4.  He was a standout player for the Tulsa Drillers for several years, and at the age of 33, this could be his last big opportunity.  I hope he makes the most of it!




The call-ups of catcher-outfielder Chris Herrmann and 33-year-old utility infielder Doug Bernier were announced Sunday. Bernier, who had four at-bats with the 2008 Colorado Rockies, had to be added to the 40-man roster.

Bernier, who played exclusively shortstop for the Red Wings, was hitting .295 with 23 extra-base hits in 302 at-bats for Rochester. He bats right-handed.
