Surprise, Édouard Julien is demoted


Quebecer Édouard Julien left a good calling card in major league baseball, but the Minnesota Twins still demoted him to the AAA level on Friday.

The return to the action by infielder Jorge Polanco, who was on the 10-day disabled list, prompted the organization to make this personnel move.

Whoever turns 24 in just over a week was able to compete in the first eight games of his career in the majors. In 27 batting appearances, Julien had six hits, including two homers, producing four runs.

He will join the St. Paul Saints, with whom he has maintained a batting average of .290 in 38 plate appearances at the start of the season.
