Insight: Neshek has an inflamed tendon in the palm of his pitching hand. It's looking like it'll be well into June before he returns to the Twins' bullpen. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Neshek (right middle finger) has been placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to April 29 with finger inflammation.
Insight: Neshek missed 10 days in April with the finger issue, and struggled in his one appearance over the past week. His absence will create a vacancy in the Twins' bullpen. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: MLB.com reports Neshek (finger) said his right middle finger did not bother him during a brief outing on Wednesday.

4/22/2010 2:00:00 PM
Description: 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.com reports Neshek (finger) threw a bullpen session on Thursday without problem and should be available on Friday.
Insight: Neshek has not pitched since April 14 due to a sore flexor tendon in his right middle finger, but now looks likely to avoid a DL stint. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports Neshek (finger) played catch on Wednesday and will try to throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Neshek (finger) has a sore flexor tendon in his right middle finger.
Insight: Neshek is coming back from Tommy John surgery, so he is unlikely to be used on back-to-back days any way after being used on Wednesday. More should be known about his status going forward in the coming days. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/6/2010 10:06:00 AM

Description: According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire shot down talk of Neshek being considered for the team's ninth inning vacancy.
Insight: Neshek is a little over a year removed from Tommy John surgery and does appear to be making decent progress in his recovery. He is likely to settle back into a set-up role, but could pick up a few saves if the Twins' use a committee approach or one guy can't nail down the job in Joe Nathan's (right elbow) absence. (SportsBuff.com)
