Twins Place Danny Coulombe On 15-Day IL, Select Juan Minaya
The Twins placed left-hander Danny Coulombe on the 15-day injured list, while also optioning right-hander Yennier Cano to Triple-A. In corresponding moves, the Twins called up left-hander Jovani Moran and selected the contract of veteran righty Juan Minaya. (Minnesota had room on its 40-man roster, so no further moves were required to create space for Minaya.)
Coulombe has continued to be a positive presence coming out of the Twins’ bullpen, having tosses 12 1/3 innings with a 1.46 ERA/3.87 FIP across 10 appearances this season. The 32-year-old put up 34 1/3 innings with a 3.67 ERA/3.75 FIP last season for the Twinkies. Cano also departs the bullpen for the time being, though the 28-year-old rookie has served up 11 earned runs across just 7 1/3 innings this season.
