Twins send Hughes, May to DL; add Gibson, Chargois
The Minnesota Twins made a flurry of roster moves on Friday afternoon, placing Phil Hughes and Trevor May on the 15-day disabled list and reinstating Kyle Gibson, while recalling J.T. Chargois from Triple-A.
Hughes was diagnosed with a left-knee contusion after being struck by a line drive in the ninth inning of a game against the Miami Marlins on Thursday night, while May is suffering from lower back spasms.
Gibson returns from the DL after missing 42 games with a right shoulder strain.
He posted a 1.17 ERA with 10 strikeouts in two rehab starts in Single-A, and one in Triple-A.
A second-round pick of the Twins in 2012, Chargois is set to make his major-league debut after appearing in 11 games for the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings.
Chargois posted a 0.73 ERA as a reliever for the Red Wings, racking up 20 strikeouts, four walks and four saves after starting the season in Double-A.
