Twins place closer Matt Capps on DL
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have placed closer Matt Capps on the disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.
The team announced the move on Monday, one day after Capps showed up in Cincinnati with more pain in his shoulder.
The issue has bothered Capps for much of the summer. The veteran tried to pitch through the discomfort, but it was hampering his effectiveness.
The Twins will likely use a combination of left-hander Glen Perkins and right-hander Jared Burton to fill in for Capps while he is out. The Twins recalled lefty Tyler Robertson from Triple-A Rochester to fill the roster spot. He went 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA in 33 relief appearances for the Red Wings.
T’Wolves host Will Barton for pre-draft workout
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves worked out Memphis guard Will Barton and three other draft prospects on Monday as they continue their preparation for the NBA draft.
Barton averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game for the Tigers last season as a sophomore. Temple guard Ramone Moore, Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates and Wichita State center Garrett Stutz also worked out.
The Timberwolves hold the 18th pick in Thursday night’s draft. So far they have only hosted two players — Barton and Iowa State forward Royce White — who are projected to be selected in that area. Another one is scheduled for Tuesday when Syracuse center Fab Melo will work out.
Xavier guard Tu Holloway and center Kenny Frease and Villanova guard Maalik Wayns are among those scheduled to join Melo.
