De Vries, Wood continue rehab work

CHICAGO -- Cole De Vries is throwing a bullpen session back at Target Field on Saturday afternoon. If all goes well, assistant general manager Rob Antony said, De Vries will proceed to Fort Myers on Sunday.

De Vries was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain on April 7 and was shut down for eight days after receiving the diagnosis. He began a throwing program last week.

Right-handed reliever Tim Wood, on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 24 with a right rotator cuff strain, was scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Rochester, but the Red Wings were rained out Friday night.

Wood can be on a rehab assignment for a maximum of 30 days. In two games with Class A Fort Myers, Wood has thrown 1 1/3 innings (1-0), allowing five hits, three runs and one walk. He has not made an appearance for the Twins, but has 57 Major League appearances with the Marlins and Pirates from 2009-11.
