The Twins were considering three pitchers for Friday's start, and chose Samuel Deduno. Manager Ron Gardenhire said Gibson will eventually pitch in the rotation this year, but now wasn't the time. Gibson has a 3.25 ERA through nine Triple-A starts this season.
The team needed a starter Friday, and three pitchers were being considered. Manager Ron Gardenhire confirmed on MLB Network Radio that Deduno has been picked to make the start. In three Triple-A starts, Deduno has a 2.70 ERA in 16 2/3 innings.
Doumit flied out in the ninth inning and is batting .218. He's day to day and should return to action shortly.
It translated into a loss for Correia, who fell to .500 at 4-4 on the year. Correia gave up five earned runs on eight hits and a walk over just four innings without striking out a batter.
He gave up a three-run homer to Dan Uggla in the first inning and the Twins didn't back him with much offensive support. He threw 75 pitches and his ERA is at 3.90.
Correia has lost consecutive starts with eight runs allowed over 11 innings. He's given up at least three runs in four straight starts. His next start comes Saturday at Detroit.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said Doumit, who doesn't like to acknowledge pain, is a "little sore." He can be considered day-to-day for now.
Doumit has gone 13 for 51 (.255) in May thus far over 14 games with three homers and 10 RBI.
