Twins’ Doumit not on DL, but Blackburn is
Minnesota catcher Ryan Doumit is not on the disabled list, and
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire says the team’s announcement that he
had been put there was incorrect.
Instead, Gardenhire said Thursday that right-hander Nick
Blackburn was going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained
left quadriceps. Blackburn was pulled after two innings in his
start Wednesday night at Detroit.
After that game, the Twins announced that Doumit had been put on
the DL with a strained right calf. But Gardenhire now says he’s day
to day after an MRI revealed encouraging results. Gardenhire said:
”The announcement that he was on the DL was just a little early.
We kind of got ahead of ourselves.”
Minnesota recalled outfielder Ben Revere from Triple-A Rochester
to replace Blackburn.
