The Minnesota Twins are running out of lefties for their bullpen.
The club placed left-hander Glen Perkins on the 15-day disabled list yesterday after he left Monday night's game against the Texas Rangers in the eighth inning when he strained a muscle near the back of his left shoulder.
He is expected to miss two weeks.
Related, Minnesota purchased the contract of left-hander Carmen Cali from the AAA Rochester Red Wings. Cali was 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA with one save in 12 appearances for Rochester so far this season.
Also missing from the Twins relief corps is husky lefty Dennys Reyes, due to a sore left shoulder. Reyes will stick around the active roster and continue to try strengthening exercises to rehab the shoulder before being examined by team doctors when the Twins return home Thursday.
Furthermore, right-hander Jesse Crain will have season-ending surgery next week to fix a right shoulder injury.
