Twins to bring up Darnell to start Saturday against White Sox in place of ailing Gibson

  • Print

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins plan to bring up left-hander Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday against the Chicago White Sox in place of ailing Kyle Gibson.

Gibson played long toss from 120 feet and threw in the bullpen Friday. He'll try to start Tuesday in Kansas City.

The right-hander originally was scheduled to pitch Wednesday against Cleveland but was scratched the day before due to lower back stiffness. Gibson is 8-8 with a 4.19 ERA in 19 starts.

Darnell, who was 5-5 with a 3.43 ERA for Rochester, will be making his first major league start. A corresponding roster move will be made after Friday's game.

Gibson isn't the only Twins pitcher dealing with an injury.

Phil Hughes left Thursday's start after taking a line drive off his shin. He felt better Friday and expects to make his next start.

Kohl Stewart, the No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft, went on the seven-day disabled list Friday at Class A Cedar Rapids with a sore shoulder, but general manager Terry Ryan said he didn't think it was too serious.
