May 23rd, 2021

CLEVELAND, OH — The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have placed right-handed pitcher Kenta Maeda on the 10-day Injured List with a right adductor strain. He was removed after 5.0 innings yesterday in Cleveland due to the injury.

Maeda has gone 2-2 with a 5.27 ERA (42.2 IP, 25 ER) over nine starts for the Twins this season. This will be his first stint on the Injured List as a member of the Twins.  

To replace Maeda on the 26-man roster, the Twins have recalled infielder Nick Gordon from Triple-A St. Paul. Gordon, who will be making his third stint with the Twins this season, has appeared in eight games for the Saints hitting .393 (11-for-28) with one triple, one home run, four RBI and five stolen bases. The former first rounder recorded his first major league hit on May 6 vs. Texas and became the first Twins player to record two stolen bases in his debut.
