Jesse Crain has been placed on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. For those who were crying foul about his over-usage, this is already vindication; whether or not it can actually be attributed to that, though, is always questionable. Jose Mijares will now return to the Majors after a brief stint in Rochester. The bullpen is in trouble and this certainly doesn't help, but hopefully Mijares pitches like he did at the end of last year, thus mitigating the loss of Crain. If he pitches like he did this spring, it could spell a lot of trouble for the Twins.
I was planning a bigger post for the off-day but I got distracted with other things. Luckily for me, I'll have another chance on Thursday!
