The Minnesota Twins have placed SP Mike Pelfrey (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of a back strain. The move is retroactive to Wednesday, June 19.

The Minnesota Twins will recall SP Samuel Deduno and place him in the rotation Friday, May 24, passing up top prospect Kyle Gibson. Deduno will replace Pedro Hernandez.
Fantasy Tip: Deduno is best known for his success in this March's World Baseball Classic for the champion Dominican Republic squad. His control issues have held him back from taking a step forward in the bigs, though AL-only scroungers could find useful, roster-capping innings here, especially during home starts. Gibson, however, should be a factor for the Twins sometime this summer after his Super 2 status clears.

The Minnesota Twins recalled RP Caleb Thielbar from Triple-A Rochester Monday, May 20, and optioned SP Pedro Hernandez in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The club's Friday starter is TBA right now, meaning Kyle Gibson could be the option to be called up to make his major league debut. There was speculation last week that Hernandez could be sent down. If you're in an AL-only league, it might be worth the speculative pick-up of Gibson now.

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson, who threw a shutout with Triple-A Rochester Wednesday, May 8, will not take the place of SP Pedro Hernandez in the rotation, according to general manager Terry Ryan.
Fantasy Tip: Gibson is the team's top pitching prospect, but his workload will be limited this year after recovering from Tommy John surgery. He's not a lock to come up later in the year for these reasons, but he'll be an option for fantasy owners next year.

The Minnesota Twins will place SP Cole De Vries (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm. The move will be retroactive to last Saturday, March 30. SP Pedro Hernandez will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to take De Vries' scheduled start Sunday, April 7. De Vries still had tightness in his arm during a bullpen session Friday, April 5.

Minnesota Twins SP Pedro Hernandez will start Sunday, April 7, in place of SP Cole De Vries (forearm).
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez should only be a last-ditch option in the deepest of AL leagues and probably should be left to the waiver wire for now. There isn't any indication yet that De Vries will need to go on the DL.
