Francisco Liriano, scratched from Saturday's start with a sore shoulder, played catch on Monday but did not feel well, so the lefty was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to May 23.
The Twins replaced him on the roster with right-hander Anthony Slama, who was 2-1 with a 3.70 ERA at Triple-A Rochester in 16 appearances.
Liriano's MRI showed only inflammation, so he's not expected to miss significant time. Liriano was replaced by Anthony Swarzak, who took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. Swarzak will likely make Liriano's start on Thursday against the Royals.
