Twins select contract of LHP Tyler Robertson
JUN 24, 2012 8:18p ET
Indications are that the Twins will place closer Matt Capps on the disabled list, as the right-hander has been battling a shoulder injury. Capps pitched on Saturday but did not close in Sunday's game.
Robertson, 24, was a third-round draft pick of the Twins in 2006. He spent all of the 2011 season with Double-A New Britain, and began this season with Rochester. In 33 relief appearances this season, Roberts was 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA, including two saves. He's recorded 33 strikeouts and walked 13 in 28-2/3 innings. If and when he appears for the Twins this season, he will be making his major league debut.
