Recommended Posts

The Twins on Monday announced eight September call-ups, including several players who will get another chance to prove they belong in the majors.

 

Outfielder Aaron Hicks, catchers Josmil Pinto and Chris Herrmann, infielder Doug Bernier, righthanders Michael Tonkin and Lester Oliveros and lefthanders Logan Darnell and A.J. Achter will join the club Tuesday. All but Achter have played for the Twins in the past.

That is a Great article on Doug!  It mirrors many of his comments in the Feinstein book, but adds a bit more perspective as he "ages" at 34.  He is one of the real "exceptions" in minor league baseball, who not only loves the game but is willing to go at it every day and year hoping to grab the golden ring someday.  He has parlayed his strong suit -- great defensive player with speed on the bases -- to opportunities many years after most minor leaguers have been "retired".  He would be a good model for other ORU players to learn about and learn from.  He's a guy who should be a contender for a speaker at the Diamond Dinner ... He could speak to the fans, but really send a message to the ORU players about what it's like "at the next level."   He's had quite a career of ups-and-downs, with the "ups" being very special in his memory!

Doug Bernier is back on a major league roster with the Minnesota Twins as an injury replacement infielder while Eduardo Nunez is on the 15-day DL with a strained oblique muscle.  He got 1 at-bat in yesterday's game, drew a walk and scored a run.  So he has a 1.000 OBP.

 

He has been playing in Rochester at the AAA level this year and hitting .250 with a .299 OBP.  Minnesota has a new manager this year, Paul Molitor, who replaced Ron Gardenhire.  So this is a good sign that the new manager also has a comfort level with Doug Bernier just like Gardenhire did.
