A day after leaving the Minnesota Twins' victory at Detroit because of a strained left quadriceps, pitcher Nick Blackburn was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
The team elected not to place catcher Ryan Doumit on the DL, although they announced their plan to do so after Wednesday's game.
The Star Tribune reported that Doumit had an MRI done on his strained right calf on Wednesday night, and the Twins said the results of the exam were favorable.
Ben Revere was recalled from Class AAA Rochester and will start in center field at Detroit on Thursday. Revere now replaces Blackburn instead of Doumit.
