The Twins officially added Samuel Deduno to the roster today. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, they transferred reliever Tim Wood (shoulder) from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.
Deduno's debut has been delayed by a strained groin muscle suffered during the World Baseball Classic when he starred for the Dominican Republic. He posted a 2.70 ERA in three starts at Class AAA Rochester before the call up.
In 15 starts for the Twins last season, Deduno went 6-5 with a 4.44 ERA.
The Twins have one more move to make to clear space for righthander P.J. Walters, who announced last night that he had been promoted to the Twins. Indications last night were that Walters would start on Saturday. The Twins will have to make room on their 25-man and 40-man rosters for Walters..
