The Minnesota Twins put left-handed pitcher Lewis Thorpe on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder impact in his throwing arm.
Thorpe left his start Wednesday against the Cleveland Indians with a pain in his left shoulder during the second inning. The twins had just called him from Triple-A Saint Paul to make his fifth appearance – fourth start – in the Major League this season.
Thorpe is now 0-2 with a 4.70 ERA this year, with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six).
Minnesota also selected 24-year-old right-handed Edgar Garcia, who has a 5.14 ERA in four relief appearances for the twins this season, and picked the contracts of left-handed pitcher Andrew Albers and right-handed Kyle Barraclough.
Albers last played at the MLB level for Seattle in 2017. It’s been 2019 for Barraclough. The twins signed Albers in February and Barraclough in June.
