Matt Capps placed on DL
The Twins made the announcement on Tuesday night, one night after Capps gave up two runs in the ninth inning of a 19-7 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. General manager Terry Ryan says Capps felt irritation in his rotator cuff after the outing. Capps is scheduled to have an MRI on Wednesday.
The Twins recalled right-hander Nick Blackburn, who was sent down to Triple-A Rochester on July 4 with an 8.10 ERA in 13 starts.
