The Minnesota Twins announced that they have placed shortstop Carlos Correa on the 10-day Injured List with a right oblique strain.

Correa, who sustained the injury during last night’s game in Detroit, has hit .306 (11-for-36) with two doubles, one home run, four RBI, eight walks, a .432 on-base percentage and a .876 OPS in 11 games.

To replace Correa on the 26-man roster, the Twins have recalled catcher Jair Camargo from Triple-A St. Paul. The 24-year-old has hit .268 (11-for-41), with two doubles, two home runs, seven RBI, five walks, seven runs scored, a .362 on-base percentage and an .825 OPS in 11 games for the Saints this season. A native of Barranquilla, Colombia, Camargo was acquired by the Twins from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Kenta Maeda trade in February 2020. Camargo will wear jersey number 85 and is looking to make his major league debut.

The Twins have also selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Matt Bowman from the Saints. Bowman has not permitted an earned run across five relief appearances for St. Paul this season, working 6.0 innings with one unearned run allowed, three hits, two walks and seven strikeouts. The 32-year-old has gone 7-13 with a 4.13 ERA (185.1 IP, 85 ER), 64 walks and 152 strikeouts across parts of five major league seasons with St. Louis (2016-18), Cincinnati (2019) and New York-AL (2023).

To make room for Bowman on the 26-man and 40-man rosters, the Twins have designated right-handed pitcher Michael Tonkin for release or assignment. Tonkin, who was acquired in a trade with the New York Mets on April 9, pitched 2.0 innings against the Tigers last night, allowing two runs on two hits, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Additionally, right-handed pitcher Simeon Woods Richardson has been appointed as the 27th man for today’s doubleheader and is slated to start the second game at Comerica Park. The 23-year-old has made two starts this season for St. Paul, going 0-1 with a 7.56 ERA (8.1 IP, 7 ER), four walks, eight strikeouts and a 1.68 WHIP.
