The Twins will call up righthander Michael Tonkin from Class AAA Rochester to replace Willingham.
Since Willingham hasn’t fully recovered, the Twins will have him undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam Saturday.
He will be placed on the DL retroactive to Sunday, the day he was hit by a pitch in Cleveland.
Tonkin was a late cut from spring training camp but made the Opening Day roster when Brian Duensing left on paternity leave. Tonkin returned to Rochester on April 3, and he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 4⅔ innings there.
“The starters haven’t been going deep,” Antony said. “It made more sense to call up a pitcher than a position player.”
Bartlett on way back
Shortstop Jason Bartlett, on the 15-day DL because of a left ankle sprain, ran the bases before Friday’s game and said it went great, so he is headed to Fort Myers, Fla., to work out for a couple of days before beginning a rehabilitation assignment.
