Twins place Deduno and Ramirez on 15-day disabled list


Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN - The Minnesota Twins announced that they have placed right-handed pitcher Samuel Deduno on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness and outfielder Wilkin Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left tibia. Ramirez fouled a ball of his leg in the fifth inning of yesterday's game against the Kansas City Royals.

To replace Deduno and Ramirez on the 25-man roster, the Twins have recalled left-handed pitcher Pedro Hernandez from Double-A New Britain and outfielder Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Rochester.

In 12 appearances (10 starts) this season between the GCL Twins, Double-A New Britain and Triple-A Rochester, Hernandez went 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA (64.0 IP, 26 ER). He has a record of 3-1 with a 5.54 ERA (37.1 IP, 23 ER) in nine appearances (seven starts) for the Twins this season.

Mastroianni, who started the season with the Twins, missed 106 games with a stress reaction in his left ankle. After a rehab assignment, he was optioned to Triple-A where he hit .333 (12-for-36) in 11 games for the Red Wings.
Both Hernandez and Mastroianni will join the Twins tonight in Texas.
