I see Doyle had a 2/3 K/BB ratio in 5.1 innings with the Twinkies. 5.1 innings is a pretty small sample size. Seems the last of his 3 outings did the most damage. Hopefully, Dotson can keep his ratios as they were in AA-Birmingham.
UPDATE: Here’s Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan:
“We offered him back to the White Sox, with some discussion about possibly trying to keep him,” said Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan of Doyle, who cleared waivers and posted a 3.07 ERA over 26 starts for Class A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham last year. “I threw some things at Kenny, he threw some things back just like any of those discussions go. We couldn’t work it out, so we’re sending him back today.”
He needs to get on with his career. You never like to see a young kid that’s trying to make his way to the Major Leagues sit around too long. He’s only had a few innings here. That’s not good for anybody’s career, so we made a decision sooner rather than later.”
