Twins' Sean Poppen: Transferred to 60-day IL
Poppen (elbow) was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday and transferred to the 60-day injured list with a right elbow contusion.
The Twins brought the injured Poppen back on the roster solely to move him to the 60-day IL and open up an extra spot on the 40-man roster. He's pitched across three levels for the season -- including for the Twins -- but did most of his work for Rochester, where he accrued a 3.84 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 68 strikeouts across 61 innings.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Bumped off active roster
The Twins optioned Poppen to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday.
There was no room at the inn for Poppen after the Twins required a roster spot for reliever Sam Dyson, who was acquired from the Giants on Wednesday. Poppen's latest stint with the Twins lasted a week, with the right-hander making three appearances and striking out seven over 4.1 innings but surrendering four runs.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Back with big club
Poppen was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Poppen will replace Devin Smeltzer -- who was optioned to the minors following Wednesday's game -- on the roster and in the bullpen. In one appearance with the big club this season, Poppen surrendered three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two across four innings. The 25-year-old righty has worked primarily as a starter in the minors, so he should offer length out of the bullpen during his time in the majors.
