Scott Baker won't make his scheduled start Monday in the first game of a doubleheader against Cleveland, instead he'll be put on the disabled list.
However, the move is retroactive to July 7, meaning he could be back soon.
The right-hander was diagnosed with a right flexor strain. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire told reporters after the game that Baker just didn't feel right and the team didn't want to push it.
Anthony Swarzak will pitch the day game on Monday, while lefty Scott Diamond has been called up from Triple-A to start the second game.
The team also optioned infielder Matt Tolbert to Triple-A and called up lefty Chuck James to take his place.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
