Twins bring Fien back from DL, send Tonkin down
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Twins have returned right-hander Casey Fien from his rehab assignment for a strained right shoulder and removed him from the disabled list.
The move was made before the game Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays, and right-hander Michael Tonkin was sent to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Fien in the bullpen.
Fien missed 25 games with his injury. Minnesota’s primary setup man had a 4.35 ERA in 10 1/3 innings before he was hurt. He pitched three scoreless innings for Rochester on his rehab assignment.
Tonkin posted a 5.14 ERA in seven innings, after being recalled from Rochester for the seventh time in the last three years.
