MINNEAPOLIS -- With Triple-A Rochester's season coming to an end Sunday, that means reinforcements are headed to Minnesota. The Twins announced after Sunday's game that they recalled seven players from Rochester: pitchers Scott Diamond, Cole De Vries, Michael Tonkin and Shairon Martis, infielder Eduardo Escobar, outfielder Chris Parmelee and catcher Eric Fryer. The Red Wings fell 3-0 Sunday to Pawtucket in the decisive game of a best-of-five series in the International League playoffs. To make room for Fryer and Martis on the 40-man roster, the Twins placed pitcher Samuel Deduno and outfielder Wilkin Ramirez on the 60-day disabled list. Given the Red Wings' playoff run, Minnesota had to delay making its September call-ups. That meant the Twins had just 26 players on the roster through Sunday's loss to Toronto. One of those -- infielder Doug Bernier -- has been unavailable with an elbow injury, and the Twins' bullpen has also been overworked. Finally, manager Ron Gardenhire has reinforcements to work with for the final three weeks of the season. "This will be good," Gardenhire said. "We're getting another catcher up here, which is going to help us. (Ryan) Doumit is going to probably pretty much DH or play the outfield, at best, the rest of the way, along with (Josh) Willingham. We'll have enough people up here where I've got a backup first baseman in Parmelee. We need some help. That'll be good." Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter
