The Minnesota Twins placed righthanded pitcher Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a mild right rotator cuff strain and replaced him on the 25-man roster by selecting the contract of righthander Luis Perdomo from Triple-A Rochester.
Perdomo has split time at Double-A New Britain and Rochester this season. He has appeared in a combined 37 games, posting a 2.14 earned-run average with 61 strikeouts.
Carl Pavano, who has been sidelined by a right shoulder injury, was moved to the 60-day disabled list but could return in August.
The Twins' bullpen has logged plenty of innings this season and Swarzak leads the team's relievers with 69 innings pitched. He is 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA in 31 games, including four starts.
