The Twins put 29-year old lefty Brian Duensing in the starting rotation full-time last year for the first time and it didn’t go too well. He pitched in 32 games (28 starts) for the Twins last year and he was 9-14 with a 5.23 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. So they moved him to the bullpen this spring and he is excelling in his new role. Duensing has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the Twins so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He has now pitched in 118 games (50 starts) in his first four years with the Twins and he is 24-20 with a 3.94 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. Hopefully the Twins resist the temptation to move Duensing back into the starting rotation, as Carl Pavano has the lowest starters’ ERA with a 4.73 mark.
