Jose Berrios is on his way to the Twin Cities.

One day after demoting Byron Buxton and Max Kepler, the Minnesota Twins will call up their top prospect, reports Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, citing Berrios' Facebook post, which was confirmed by Mike Berardino of the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, citing two sources.

Berrios is expected to start Wednesday against the Cleveland Indians and will join a Twins rotation that sits 10th in the American League in team ERA.

The 21-year-old Puerto Rican was selected in the first round of the 2012 draft, 32nd overall, and is ranked by MLB Pipeline as the 16th-best prospect in baseball.

He'll become the youngest Twins pitcher to debut as a starter since Pat Mahomes in 1992.

Berrios owned a 2-0 record with a 1.06 ERA and 0.94 WHIP for Triple-A Rochester prior to his call-up.
