Twins lose Deduno, Ramirez to injuries vs. Royals
Minnesota Twins right-hander Samuel Deduno has soreness in his throwing shoulder.
Deduno was pulled from his start against Kansas City on Thursday after three innings because of discomfort. He gave up four hits, three runs and a walk while striking out four. Deduno was bothered by biceps tendinitis around the shoulder earlier this month.
The Twins also lost right fielder Wilkin Ramirez during the game to a bruised left shin, when he hit himself with a foul ball in the fifth inning. He'll be re-evaluated Friday. Ramirez was replaced by Chris Herrmann.
Manager Ron Gardenhire wasn't around to watch any of it. He was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Alan Porter after a warning about pitching inside was issued to both teams in the second inning.
