 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota Twins left-hander Dennys Reyes was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with inflammation in his throwing shoulder, further depleting the team's bullpen.
The move, which was expected, is retroactive to Monday. The Twins plan to purchase the contract of left-hander Jason Miller from Triple-A Rochester before Friday's game against Toronto.
To add Miller to the 40-man roster, the team transferred injured infielder Alejandro Machado to the 60-day disabled list.
Reyes, who signed a two-year, $2 million contract extension last summer, upset manager Ron Gardenhire by revealing after his most recent outing Sunday at Milwaukee that his shoulder had been bothering him for several weeks.
After posting a 5-0 record and a 0.89 ERA last year in 50 2-3 innings, Reyes is 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA in 21 appearances. He has given up 18 hits and nine walks in 12 1-3 innings.
Right-hander Jesse Crain will have season-ending surgery on his throwing shoulder Tuesday, and left-hander Glen Perkins was placed on the disabled list earlier this week with a strained muscle in the back of his throwing shoulder.
The 24-year-old Miller, a fourth-round draft pick in 2000, is 1-1 with a 2.84 ERA in 25 1-3 innings for Rochester. Miller has allowed 26 hits and nine walks while striking out 10 in 10 appearances, three of which were starts. He has never pitched in the majors.
