Cole De Vries was supposed to sub for the injured Scott Diamond in the Twins’ rotation, but now he’s headed to the disabled list with a strained forearm.

Minnesota will call up Pedro Hernandez to start in De Vries’ place Sunday against the Orioles.

De Vries held his own after being thrown into the Twins’ injury wrecked rotation as an emergency option last season and the former undrafted free agent made 16 starts with a 4.11 ERA as a 27-year-old rookie. Hernandez was acquired from the White Sox in the Francisco Liriano trade last season and has posted some good numbers in the minors, but he’s a soft-tossing, strike-throwing left-hander.

    This surprises me. I knew he was dealing with some forearm tightness, but normally the Twins are loathe to put anyone on the DL until they have spent at least a week and a half unable to perform…

      Perhaps they are turning over a new leaf???

    Here’s an idea fire the medical staff!! How many pitchers have ruined so far with under diagnosing injury’s?

    Yes. It is, in fact, possible for the Twinks pitching staff to get worse.
