Despite being off on Thursday, the Minnesota Twins made a roster move. The team placed Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list with a mild rotator cuff strain. The Twins promoted reliever Luis Perdomo from Triple-A to take Swarzak's spot.
In order to place Perdomo on the 40-man roster, the team transferred Carl Pavano to the 60-day disabled list.
Swarzak appeared in 31 games this season, four of which came as a starter. He was 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA in 69 innings. He last pitched on Tuesday.
His replacement, Perdomo, has been very effective in Triple-A. The right-hander sports an ERA of 0.92 and has struck out 18 batters in 19.2 innings pitched.
He spent two seasons as a reliever with the San Diego Padres, appearing in 36 games. Perdomo has not pitched in the major leagues since 2010.
