The Minnesota Twins will place SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain Tuesday, July 8. OF Chris Herrmann will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester. The move is retroactive to July 6. The Twins haven't announced who'll replace Nolasco in the rotation, but it could be SPs Samuel Deduno or Anthony Swarzak. Herrmann was batting .314 with two home runs and 15 RBIs with Rochester and had been splitting time between catcher and the outfield.
Fantasy Tip: Nolasco should only be held onto in AL-only leagues at this point. Deduno or Swarzak likely only have short-term value in the starting rotation and aren't worth much consideration, aside from AL leagues.
