Twins Place Right-Handed Pitcher Mike Pelfrey on 15-Day Disabled List


Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN - The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have placed right-handed pitcher Mike Pelfrey on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain (retroactive 5/2). Pelfrey suffered the injury in the first inning of Thursday's first game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

To replace Pelfrey on the 25-man roster, the Twins have recalled infielder Danny Santana from Triple-A Rochester. Santana, who signed as an undrafted free agent with the Twins in 2007, was hitting .268 (26-for-97) with seven doubles, two triples, seven RBI, six walks and four stolen bases in 24 games for the Red Wings.

Santana is expected to be in uniform (#39) for today's game vs. the Baltimore Orioles at Target Field.
