• Right-handers Tim Wood (right rotator cuff strain) and Samuel Deduno (strained groin) remain shut down with their injuries, according to Twins general manager Terry Ryan. Ryan said there is not a timetable for a return for either pitcher yet.

"Unfortunately, the timing is not good for either one of them," Ryan said.
