Minnesota Twins make a handful of roster moves

The Minnesota Twins have been a busy team today as they made four roster moves.

The first two roster moves they made, was placing both outfielder Wilkin Ramirez and right handed pitcher Samuel Deduno on the 15 day disabled list.

Ramirez was added to the list with a fractured left tibia. It’s unclear if he will need surgery or not, but he is obviously out for the remainder of the season. He was limited to just 35 games this season with the Twins due to concussion issues.

Deduno was placed on the disabled list with right shoulder soreness. The injury won’t be known until he undergoes an MRI on Monday but it appears to be a serious injury as he was placed on the disabled list. He dealt with a shoulder issue earlier this month before leaving yesterday’s outing.

With both Deduno and Ramirez heading to the disabled list, the Twins have called up two replacements from Triple-A Rochester.

The first called up was left handed pitcher Pedro Hernandez. Hernandez will more than likely fill Deduno’s spot in the starting rotation. He holds a 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 37 1/3 innings this season with the Twins.

The second called up was outfielder Darin Mastroianni who was limited to just eight games in the majors this season due to an ankle injury which needed surgery. He should see some decent playing time during the last month of the season in center field against left handed pitchers.
