In his first appearance in the big leagues as a Twin, De Jong was decent besides the walks, while they’d go on to win 3-1 against the Kansas City Royals.
He went four innings giving up just one hit while striking out five and walking four.
In 39.1 innings of work down in Triple-A, De Jong posted a mediocre 7.78 K/9, a solid 2.75 BB/9, an excellent 0.46 HR/9, and a solid 76.8% LOB%.
The end-result was a solid 3.20 ERA to go with a similar 3.33 FIP.
Minnesota has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .248/.303/.352 to go with 16 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.
Kansas City Royals
Kennedy was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start but got the no-decision in a 1-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins.
He went six innings giving up four hits and one earned run while he struck out six and walked three.
In 100.2 innings of work this season, the veteran owns a decent 8.31 K/9, an okay 3.31 BB/9, a high 1.61 HR/9, and an okay 73.2% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 4.92 ERA to go with a slightly lower 4.76 FIP.
