The Minnesota Twins have placed closer Matt Capps on the disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.
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.
The Twins have had reasonable success in the setup role from Perkins and Burton, so they could mix-and-match depending on opposing team matchups. Capps had 14 saves and a 3.42 ERA in 27 games thus far for the Twins; there’s no indication of how long he might be out.
