Nick Blackburn's Thigh Injury?
Following the game, Manager Ron Gardenhire mentioned that RHP Nick Blackburn had an injury in his thigh? I translate that to meaning... we need an excuse to get him out of this rotation because he is really bad. Need an injury to get him to the DL.
But, if Blackburn would go on the DL, who would start?
Anthony Swarzak would move to rotation with Jeff Manship taking Swarzak's long relief job.
Could also be:
Brian Duensing or Cole DeVries. (DeVries would need a 40 man roster spot to open up)
