MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins have activated right-hander Cole De Vries from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Rochester. De Vries initially made the Twins' 25-man roster out of spring training but was put on the DL with a right forearm strain on April 7. He pitched in three games one each at High-A Fort Myers, Double-A New Britain and Rochester during his rehab assignment. Last time out for Rochester, De Vries allowed six runs on 11 hits in just four innings. If one of Minnesota's other starting pitchers falters, De Vries may have a shot to earn a spot in the Twins' rotation. The Eden Prairie, Minn., native made his major league debut last season and was 5-5 with a 4.11 ERA in 17 games (16 starts). The 28-year-old De Vries had an impressive spring en route to earning a trip north. In seven games (four starts) in the Grapefruit League, he posted a 0.53 ERA and a 3-0 record while striking out nine and walking five in 17 innings. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.
