Liam Hendriks Expected to Start

Spots for the Minnesota Twins starting pitching rotation in 2012 are up for grabs. With the team clearly out of contention for a playoff spot, it's time for the team to look for some pitchers who can contribute for next season.

Liam Hendriks hasn't been very impressive in the minors so don't expect him to be great in the majors. Here are is how he performed in the minors.

Hendriks went 8-2 with a 2.70 ERA at Class AA New Britain and then 4-4 with a 4.56 ERA at Class AAA Rochester before getting promoted Sunday, racking up 111 strikeouts and only 21 walks in 139 1/3 innings between the two stops.

I expect him to pitch poorly but it should be fun to watch.
