Description: Neshek (right middle finger) has been placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to April 29 with finger inflammation.

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.
