Deduno will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Indians in long relief, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports.
Manager Ron Gardenhire has tabbed Anthony Swarzak as the starter, which is a perilous proposition due to Swarzak's dour month of July (six earned runs on 10 hits while recording four strikeouts in nine innings). Meanwhile, Deduno has pitched brilliantly in his last six appearances, allowing only one run on nine hits and five walks to go with 17 strikeouts in 15.2 innings. If Swarzak falters, Deduno could find himself in line for enough work to be considered in the decision.
