The Minnesota Twins recalled right-hander Samuel Deduno from Class AAA Rochester to start Friday's game against the host Detroit Tigers.
To make room for Deduno, the Twins transferred relief pitcher Tim Wood to the 60-day disabled list.
Deduno, 29, had a 4.44 ERA for the Twins last year in 15 starts. He was expected to make the Opening Day roster but started the season on the DL with a groin strain he sustained in the World Baseball Classic championship game for the Dominican Republic.
Deduno has a 2.70 ERA in three starts for Rochester.
