Cedar Rapids, IA - The Cedar Rapids Kernels and Minnesota Twins announce that RHP Tyler Wells has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. Brad Steil, Director of Minor League Operations for the Twins, announced the move.
Wells has made six starts for the Kernels this season, posting a 2-0 record and 2.65 ERA. In 34 IP, he allowed 27 hits and 10 runs (all earned) with 45 strikeouts and just 10 walks. He was selected by the Twins in the 15th round of the 2016 First Year Player Draft out of Cal State San Bernardino.
