According to CBS sports - http://www.cbssports...th-groin-injury

Mike Pelfrey has a.... Wait for it.... Groin injury?

Deduno is supposed to take his spot in the rotation. Still not clear what the correlating roster move will be. It should be a CF option, but will probably be a pitcher or a catcher. You can never have enough.

Well, that's good news. It seemed like the common sense thing to do but as we've discussed at great length on the forums in recent weeks, common sense ain't always common.

Groin injuries linger forever, better put him on the 60 day DL just to be safe. I hope Deduno makes the most of this chance and never gets stuck back in the bullpen again.

And shouldn't Arcia be back activated soon?

Haha, show me the play where the injured his groin.

Is the code for something? Is this related to the Christian Ponder rib injuries we hear about every year?

Has anyone looked at Correa's groin lately?

News from Berardino suggests that Pelfrey will be replaced on roster by position player, hopefully someone with some OF defensive skill as the team will be stretched then with Fuld as the only defender in the OF. Darnell added to the roster with Hicks on the concussion DL.

Who comes off the 40 then?

Let's cut Pelfrey some slack. He still has value to this Organization.

Ibarra, Raley, Fryer, Wilson... take your pick. If the Twins don't plan to have the player up for more than a couple days, maybe taking someone already on the 40man makes sense, but I just don't think losing guys at the back end of the 40 should matter that much to this team. They could DFA Burton even.

I don't believe for a second Pelfrey has a strained groin. It is a good and safe ruse, though, especially for getting Pelfrey out of the rotation and off the 25 man roster.

Danny Santana is not in the Roch lineup; Bernier is at SS.

The call up after the game??

Interesting, considering Escobar has done fine as our new shortstop.

also, I'm surprised it's a position player as we all know how Gardy hates carrying only 13 pitchers.

More shortstops (Florimon, Escobar, and Santana...... and even Dozier, really) than catchers (Suzuki, Herrmann, and Pinto......... -can you still count Mauer-?) ????

My guess would be that Florimon goes down when Arcia comes off the DL.

I'm usually skeptical about these injuries too, but I'm buying this one. Even though he has been wild this year, before yesterday he at least had good movement and velocity. Yesterday he couldn't hit 90 and had no movement. That doesn't happen so quickly without some physical ailment. I just wish he had told Anderson in the first when it happened.

He needs to clear waivers...
