More Twins: De Vries to 15-day DL

De Vries was supposed to take over for injured starter Scott Diamond in the Twins' rotation. However, he'll now spend some time on the DL with his forearm injury.

Making his major league debut last season, De Vries maintained an ERA of 4.11 with a strikeout-to-walk of 3.22 over 17 appearances spanning 87 2/3 innings. He was also impressive this spring, allowing only one earned run over 17 innings with five walks and nine strikeouts.

Minnesota has called up Pedro Hernandez to replace De Vries in their rotation. The Twins acquired the left-hander from the Chicago White Sox last July along with Eduardo Escobar in exchange for Francisco Liriano. He also made his major league debut last season, allowing eight runs on four hits over four innings during his only start for Chicago.

Hernandez spent a majority of last year between Double- and Triple-A, posting an ERA of 3.32 over 19 appearances -- including 18 starts. He owns a career ERA of 3.49 over six seasons.
