Twins place Francisco Liriano on the DL

Recall right-handed pitcher Anthony Slama

               Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN – The Minnesota Twins announced after today’s game that they will place left-handed pitcher Francisco Liriano on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation.  The move is retroactive to May 23 as Liriano missed his last start due to the injury.

                    To replace Liriano on the 25-man roster, the Twins will recall right-handed pitcher Anthony Slama from Triple-A Rochester.  Slama has gone 2-1, 3.70 (24.1 ip, 10 er) in 16 appearances for the Red Wings this season.  Slama, who made his Major League debut last season, is expected to be in uniform (39) for tomorrow night’s game in Detroit.
