The Minnesota Twins have been able to pick up a couple wins as of late but that is where the good news ends.

With Ervin Santana serving a 80 game suspension for violating MLB's performance enhancing drug policy accompannied with the fact that Ricky Nolasco is currently on the 15-day DL, they just couldn't afford another injury.

All that said, the Minnesota Twins have now put left handed pitcher Brian Duensing on the 15-day DL as well.

Duensing was hurt on Thursday as he made an appearance against the Kansas City Royals in a Twins win.

He will be eligible to return to action on May 2nd off the DL if he is able to heal in time.
