The Twins gave right-handed reliever Matt Capps a couple weeks off leading into the All-Star break due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder. But that period of rest apparently did not do the trick.

Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports that Capps has been placed back on the 15-day disabled list due to ongoing discomfort. This time, he’s out indefinitely.

No corresponding roster move was announced.

Capps, 28, has registered a 3.81 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 18/4 K/BB ratio across 28 1/3 innings this season while acting as Minnesota’s primary ninth-inning man. He can’t be shopped at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline because of the injury, but the Twins could look to deal him through waivers at some point in mid-to-late August.

    What can I say or do? You won’t come back, we’re through. I’ve realized too late. That, baby, your love has turned away.

    Nick Blackburn has been recalled to take Capps’ roster spot.
