Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Twins are placing reliever Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list with a mild rotator cuff strain, and promoting righthander Luis Perdomo from Class AAA Rochester to take his 25-man roster spot.

Perdomo had to be added to the 40-man roster, so to make room, the Twins moved Carl Pavano to the 60-day DL.

Perdomo, 28, was 2-1 with a 0.92 ERA and seven saves in 11 appearances for Rochester, with 18 strikeouts and two walks in 19 2/3 innings.

Pavano, who is out with weakness in his right rotator cuff, is headed to Fort Myers, Fla., for the next phase of his rehab.
