Twins put Mejia on injured list, recall Morin
Ahead of Minnesota’s series finale vs. Houston on Thursday, the Twins made a switch in their bullpen.
Left-hander Adalberto Mejia was placed on the injured list, retroactive to May 1, with a strained calf. In 11 innings with the Twins this season Mejia had allowed 11 runs, walking nine and striking out 11.
To take his place on the roster, right-handed reliever Mike Morin was recalled from Triple-A Rochester. In 12 innings with the Red Wings, Morin allowed three runs with three walks and 12 strikeouts. Morin has appeared in 186 major-league games with the Angels, Royals and Mariners, with a 4.66 ERA, 1.282 WHIP and 8.6 K/9 over 174 innings. He pitched in four innings for Seattle in 2018.
