Slowey suffers just mild strain of triceps

|
ARLINGTON -- The Twins received much better news in regards to Kevin Slowey on Monday, as an MRI exam revealed the right-hander only suffered a mild stain of his right triceps muscle.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said the MRI didn't show anything serious in regards to the strain in the triceps.

"We'll give him a couple weeks on the DL and go from there," Gardenhire said. "He should be fine."

Slowey was taken out of his start on Saturday after throwing just three innings, saying he felt a tug in his right arm on the last batter he faced. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list following Saturday's contest, and would be eligible to return from the DL on Sept. 6.
