Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios will not be recalled from Class AAA Rochester this season due to his hefty workload in the minors this year, according to general manager Terry Ryan.
Fantasy Tip: Berrios is a top pitching prospect for the Twins, and he owns a 2.90 ERA with a 7.4 K/9 over 161 1/3 innings through two minor league stops this season. He is a stash candidate in deep keeper/dynasty formats, but he can be dropped in all one-year leagues.

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left elbow Monday, Aug. 3. SP Tyler Duffey will be called up from Class AAA Rochester to make his major league debut Wednesday, Aug. 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Duffey went 4-6 with a 2.72 ERA for Rochester this year. SP Jose Berrios was in consideration, too, but the Twins felt Duffey was more prepared. Milone's DL trip is precautionary, and manager Paul Molitor said Milone's elbow was "in good shape" structurally. SP Trevor May remains in a relief role.
Fantasy Tip: Duffey will be a cheap option on FantasyScore if you want to build your lineup with studs at other positions. However, a matchup against the highest run-scoring team in the major leagues isn't an ideal place to use the young right-hander.

Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios will make his first start with Class AAA Rochester Friday, July 3, as he's replacing SP Ervin Santana in the starting rotation there.
Fantasy Tip: Berrios is the team's top pitching prospect after going 8-3 with a 3.08 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 92 strikeouts in 90 2/3 innings over 15 starts for Class AA Chattanooga this year. If he performs well at Class AAA, he could be called up to Minnesota later this year. He should be firmly on your radar in dynasty and keeper leagues.
