Ankle - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-July (Updated - 6/15/15)
News
A bullpen session that Paul Molitor admitted did not go well has Twins shelved pitcher Ricky Nolasco set to get another opinion on his ailing ankle, the manager has reported to MLB.com.

The ankle will be examined by specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, who has operated upon many NFL players dealing midfoot or Lisfranc injuries.

If Nolasco requires surgery, he would need as much as five or six months to recover. If not, he could still miss another 5-6 weeks.

Suspension - 80-game suspension. Expected to return July 5 at Kansas City (Updated - 7/1/15)
News
Twins manager Paul Molitor is excited about starting pitcher Ervin Santana's return from an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. Santana is slated to start Sunday against the Royals.

Santana threw eight shutout innings in his final rehab start for Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

“I just had a chance to look at the numbers,” Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. “They kind of jump out at you. He was efficient, obviously effective. Command must have been good; he didn’t walk anybody. I think everyone is excited to know we’re getting a pitcher of Ervin’s caliber back here to join our club over the weekend.”

News
Right-hander Trevor May took a tough-luck loss on Wednesday, as the Twins were shut down by Johnny Cueto and the Reds. May was strong in the outing, allowing just two runs (one earned) over 6 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out six, but his record dropped to 4-7.

This was a nice bounceback effort for May, who was able to get all of one out before being pulled in the first inning with six runs allowed in his last start. May's ERA shrunk to 4.37 with Wednesday's performance.

Discounting that nightmare start in his previous outing, May has allowed more than three runs just once in his last eight starts.

The Twins have optioned first baseman Kennys Vargas to Double-A Chattanooga following Wednesday's loss to the Reds, according to MLB.com. Vargas started on Wednesday and went 1 for 3 with a single and a strikeout.

Vargas has struggled all season, and was demoted to Triple-A earlier this season. He made his return to the majors on June 8, but hit just .240 (13 for 54) with two home runs and 17 strikeouts. 

"I’m sure he’s not a happy gentleman right now but it’s probably the right thing for him to do," manager Paul Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. "He's had a couple moments since he’s been back. He needs to go down there and get back to hitting."

The Twins are expected to announce a corresponding roster move on Thursday.
