Capps reinstated from DL, Waldrop optioned to Rochester

Attached Image: Matt-Capps.jpg The Twins have reinstated reliever Matt Capps from the 15-day disabled list.

Capps was placed on the disabled list on June 25 (retroactive to June 24) with right shoulder inflammation. In his two outings with the Fort Myers Miracle Capps worked two innings while striking out one against Florida State League competition.

To clear room, the Twins have optioned reliever Kyle Waldrop to Rochester.

In Capps' absence, the Twins have used Glen Perkins and Jared Burton as the team's closers. Perkins worked nine innings, striking out eight and walking just one while converting four of five save opportunities. Burton pitched 8.2 innings while posting a 6/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio while converting on both of his save opportunities. With Capps back in the fold, Burton and Perkins may return to their previous set-up roles.
