Twins' Doumit not on DL, but Blackburn is

Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Minnesota catcher Ryan Doumit is not on the disabled list, and Twins manager Ron Gardenhire says the team's announcement that he had been put there was incorrect.

Instead, Gardenhire said Thursday that right-hander Nick Blackburn was going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quadriceps. Blackburn was pulled after two innings in his start Wednesday night at Detroit.

After that game, the Twins announced that Doumit had been put on the DL with a strained right calf. But Gardenhire now says he's day to day after an MRI revealed encouraging results. Gardenhire said: "The announcement that he was on the DL was just a little early. We kind of got ahead of ourselves."

Minnesota recalled outfielder Ben Revere from Triple-A Rochester to replace Blackburn.
