DETROIT - The Minnesota Twins placed starting pitcher Francisco Liriano on the 15-day disabled list after Monday's loss at Detroit with left shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to May 23. Liriano has compiled a 3-5 record with a 5.73 earned run average in nine starts this season. He pitched the fifth no-hitter in Minnesota Twins history on May 3 against the White Sox. To replace Liriano on the roster, the Twins will recall pitcher Anthony Slama from Triple-A Rochester.
