The Minnesota Twins have optioned right-hander Liam Hendriks to Triple-A, reports Joe Christensen of the Minnesota Star Tribune.

In a corresponding roster move, the Twins have recalled right-hander Cole De Vries.

This marks Henriks’ second demotion of the season, as the 23-year-old was optioned back down to Triple-A in early May. He nearly blew a 6-1 lead during yesterday’s contest against the Detroit Tigers, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks over his four innings of work.

Hendriks put together one of his best starts of the season on June 26 (3 ER, 6 IP) before yesterday’s poor performance. He’s maintained an ERA and WHIP of 7.04 and 1.748 over his eight starts spanning 38 1/3 innings with 5.4 SO/9 and 2.3 BB/9.

De Vries, 27, has started four games for the Twins this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 3.43 and 1.238 over his 21 innings. He’s maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.37 and 1.214 over his 12 starts for Minnesota’s Triple-A affiliate.
