Twins recall LHP Milone; RHP Nolasco placed on 15-day DL

BOSTON (AP) The Minnesota Twins recalled Thursday's starter Tommy Milone from Triple-A before their game against the Boston Red Sox.

The 28-year old Milone was Minnesota's opening day starter before being sent to the minors on May 1. He was 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA in four starts before being shipped to Rochester.

Milone made five starts in Triple-A, going 4-0 with a 0.70 ERA.

To make room for Milone, the club placed right-hander Ricky Nolasco on the 15-day disabled list because of an injured right ankle he sustained in his previous start on May 31.
