Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN – The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have recalled outfielder Jake Cave from Triple-A Rochester.  Cave, who has played in seven games for the Twins this season (4-for-19), was hitting .265 (57-for-215) with nine doubles, one triple, five home runs and 27 RBI for the Red Wings.

Cave, who was acquired in a trade with the New York Yankees in March, split the 2017 season between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, hitting .305 (124-for-406) with 26 doubles, five triples, 20 home runs, 56 RBI, 66 runs scored and a .351 on-base percentage.  The 6-foot-0, 200-pound Cave was originally drafted by the Yankees in the sixth round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.  The Hampton, Virginia native was named an Organization All-Star by MiLB.com after the 2017 season.

Cave will take the 25-man roster spot of outfielder Ryan LaMarre, who was optioned to Rochester after Sunday afternoon’s game.
