Twins place Duensing on paternity leave
MAR 31, 2014 5:10p ET
The moves were announced before Monday's opener against the Chicago White Sox.
Duensing's wife, Lisa, gave birth to a boy named Boston Matthew Duensing in Omaha. It was the second child for the couple.
Tonkin made nine appearances for the Twins last season and did not have a decision. He gave up six runs -- one earned -- in 11 1-3 innings.
