Twins placed LHP Logan Darnell on the 60-day disabled list with pneumonia.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Ricky Nolasco's return. Darnell had already been effectively ruled out for the season due to pneumonia and is now officially done.

Logan Darnell is battling pneumonia and is unlikely to pitch this month.

Darnell contracted the illness nearly a week after being promoted earlier this month and was sent for an X-ray when he wasn't improving. "It got real bad," Darnell said. "On the X-ray, my whole right lung was covered (in fluids)." The lefty has lost 17 pounds due to the illness. He won't make an appearance for the Twins but plans to play winter ball in Venezuela.

Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

Darnell put up a 2.78 ERA while splitting his time between starting and relieving at Rochester this season. The Twins will use him in long relief.

Logan Darnell will make a spot start for the Twins on Sunday afternoon against the Angels.

Darnell pitched terribly in two starts earlier this year at the major league level. The 25-year-old southpaw is not a good fantasy streaming option versus Anaheim.

Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

The 25-year-old struggled mightily in two starts with the Twins earlier this season but presumably will be used in relief this time. Darnell put up a 3.60 ERA over 115 innings at Rochester.

Twins optioned LHP Logan Darnell to Triple-A Rochester.

The 25-year-old hurler struggled badly through two starts with the Twins, and they decided that they had seen enough. Tommy Milone is expected to join the Twins rotation next weekend.

Logan Darnell pitched erratically in allowing four runs in four innings against the White Sox on Friday

Last time out, the White Sox knocked him for seven runs, so technically this four-run jaunt was an improvement. Darnell walked four, struck out four and allowed five hits. He has an 8.25 ERA. He is not on the fantasy radar.

Logan Darnell was torched for seven runs in five innings Saturday as the Twins fell to the White Sox.

Darnell struck out seven and didn't allow a walk, but the Chicago offense got to him for 11 hits -- including a homer and three doubles. Darnell wasn't blowing batters away at Triple-A Rochester and is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance at any point this season.

Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

He will draw the start on Saturday against the White Sox. The 25-year-old southpaw sports a 3.43 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 73/40 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings at Rochester this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Fri, Jul 25, 2014 11:49:00 PM

The Twins are expected to recall Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start on Saturday versus the White Sox.

Kris Johnson was sent down after Monday's start, so the Twins need another arm for this weekend. Darnell tossed three perfect relief innings earlier this season for Minnesota and holds a 3.43 ERA over 17 Triple-A starts this year. The 25-year-old can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 09:46:00 AM

Twins optioned LHP Logan Darnell to Triple-A Rochester.

Darnell worked three innings in relief on Tuesday, striking out one while not allowing a baserunner. Matt Guerrier's contract was purchased to take Darnell's place in the bullpen.
