Twins place Duensing on 15-day disabled list
The Twins announced on Friday Duensing sustained an intercostal strain the day before during his appearance in the ninth inning against the Kansas City Royals. Duensing has been used as the team's left-handed specialist out of the bullpen.
The Twins recalled left-hander Caleb Thielbar from Triple-A Rochester to take Duensing's place. Thielbar went 5-4 with a 2.59 ERA in 103 appearances for the Twins over the previous two seasons.
