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.

The Minnesota Twins could option C Josmil Pinto to Triple-A Rochester so that he can receive more consistent playing time and work on his defense at catcher. With the club signing DH Kendrys Morales, Pinto doesn't have a clear path to playing time. Pinto had started 19 games at designated hitter and had only 18 starts at catcher, because he's had problems on defense this year, having yet to throw out a base stealer in 16 tries. He's also made five errors. Cs Eric Fryer or Chris Herrmann could be called up to replace Pinto as the backup catcher. Pinto has a slash line of .200/.227/.329 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 23 games since May 1.
Fantasy Tip: Since the move isn't official yet, don't cut Pinto from your roster just yet, but it's looking like you'll need to go in a different direction if you've been riding him in deep mixed or two-catcher leagues.

The Minnesota Twins optioned SS Pedro Florimon and C Chris Herrmann to Triple-A Rochester Thursday, May 8.
Fantasy Tip: This means that the Twins are comfortable using some combination of Eduardo Escobar and Danny Santana at the 6. Both are interesting additions for AL-only managers. Florimon can be discarded in all leagues.
