Minnesota Twins Place Trevor Plouffe On Disabled List, Luis Perdomo Recalled

When Trevor Plouffe was scratched from the starting lineup on Friday, it was a possibility that he'd land on the disabled list with a bruised right thumb. That possibility became a reality, as the Minnesota Twins have placed Plouffe on the disabled list, retroactive to July 21 -- the last time he appeared in a game for the Twins.

Plouffe originally bruised his thumb against the Royals on July 20, when he was jammed on an inside pitch from Royals right-hander Luke Hochevar.

He missed Minnesota's next five games as a result, but was slated to make his return on Friday.

"He didn't feel right in BP," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He swung earlier in the cage and was OK. But he got out there on the field and started swinging and felt it. No good."

Plouffe has enjoyed somewhat of a breakout year in 2012, hitting .259/.330/.525 with 19 home runs in 74 games.

The Twins also announced that Luis Perdomo has been recalled from AAA, after Anthony Swarzak was placed on the disabled list. Perdomo has accumulated 59 innings between AA New Britain and AAA Rochester, striking out 61 and walking 18, while allowing just 38 hits.
