Twins put RHP Walters on 15-day disabled list

The Minnesota Twins have put right-hander P.J. Walters on the

15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.

Walters left Wednesday night’s start against the Philadelphia

Phillies after only 15 pitches with pain and stiffness. He gave up

four straight singles and two runs to begin the game.

The Twins recalled right-hander Lester Oliveros from Triple-A

Rochester to take Walters’ spot.

In 12 games for the Red Wings this season, Oliveros went 1-1

with a 4.08 ERA , four saves, 22 strikeouts and five walks. He also

appeared in 13 games for Double-A New Britain, going 1-1 with a

1.42 ERA and two saves.
