Scott Baker’s right elbow still felt sore today and he wasn’t confident he’d feel good to pitch tomorrow. The team has decided to place him on the 15-day DL but that doesn’t indicate it is serious. The move is retroactive to July 7th so he is eligible to come off the DL on Friday depending how his arm feels. In his place Scott Diamond has been called up from AAA Rochester.

Also, Matt Tolbert has been optioned to AAA Rochester and Chuck James has been called up to be the 13th pitcher on the Twins Roster. In Tomorrow’s double header Swarzak will start game 1 and Diamond will start game 2.
