INF Alexi Casilla was placed on the 15-day disabled list after Monday night's 5-4 win over the Mariners with bone spurs in his elbow. The Twins recalled INF Matt Tolbert from Class-AAA Rochester to take Casilla's place.

Because Casilla pinch ran on Monday night, he won't be eligible to come off the DL for 15 days.

Casilla has been battling soreness in his elbow for much of May, but played through it off and on.
