MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins have placed Aaron Hicks on the 7-day concussion disabled list, the team announced Friday.

Hicks crashed into the wall Thursday night and was slow to get up. He was later removed from the game for "concussion-like symptoms."

The Twins performed tests on him Thursday night and manager Ron Gardenhire said they would do follow-up examinations Friday. 

Left-handed pitcher Logan Darnell will replace Hicks on the 25-man roster. Darnell will provide added insurance, because every Twins pitcher on the roster threw in Thursday's doubleheader and Jared Burton pitched twice.

Teams almost always say that need their starter to go deep in the game, but that appears to be especially true with the Twins and Ricky Nolasco on Friday. He'll face the Orioles and Ubaldo Jimenez.

Here's more from the team on Darnell, who was summoned from Triple-A Rochester and already was on the 40-man roster:

Darnell, who was originally drafted by the Twins in the sixth round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, made four starts for the Red Wings posting a 1.69 ERA (21.1 IP, 4 ER) with 21 strikeouts and seven walks. Darnell is expected to be in uniform (#38) for tonight's game vs. the Baltimore Orioles at Target Field.
