The Twins placed starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, and recalled catcher/outfielder Chris Herrmann from AAA-Rochester.

Nolasco flew back to the Twin Cities on Tuesday morning for an MRI. Results were not known as of Tuesday afternoon. The Twins haven't announced who's taking Nolasco's spot in the rotation for the start Friday at Colorado.

Nolasco has made 18 starts for the Twins this year and has a 5.90 ERA. In other words, he's been one of the worst pitchers in the American League. But now we may know why.

*Update, per a Darren Wolfson source: Nolasco's MRI results were fine. It's just soreness. Nothing drastic like Tommy John surgery is necessary.
