The Minnesota Twins have placed infielder Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day disabled list.

Nunez strained his right hamstring while beating out an infield single last Saturday at Detroit. The move was made retroactive to Sunday.

With right-hander Yohan Pino scheduled to make his major league debut Thursday against Chicago, the Twins needed to make room on the 25-man roster. To clear space on the 40-man roster, right-hander Mike Pelfrey was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Nunez’s injury left the Twins with only three bench players for the time being. He’s batting .290 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 25 games.
