Twins | Samuel Deduno a candidate for the rotation

Minnesota Twins P Samuel Deduno, who allowed three runs and seven hits while walking two and striking out four in four innings of relief Thursday, May 1, is a candidate to enter the starting rotation with SP Mike Pelfrey struggling. Pelfrey allowed five runs and seven hits while walking three in a season-low four innings Thursday, and he's yet to go longer than 5 1/3 innings in any start this year and has walked 18 hitters in 23 2/3 frames on the year. Manager Ron Gardenhire hasn't ruled out a move to the bullpen for Pelfrey, and Pelfrey said he'd be OK with a move in order to straighten himself out.

Fantasy Tip: A move with Pelfrey is not official yet, but it seems to be inevitable. Grab Deduno in AL-only leagues if you need innings.
