Twins RHP Carlos Silva has been placed on the 15-day DL with a torn meniscus in his knee. He may be out six weeks. Dave Gassner has been called up from Rochester (AAA) to fill in for him, and may make his MLB debut during Silva's scheduled start Tuesday night. So, now that rotation that looked so shiny and solid a week ago boils down to:

Guy Who Can't Get Run Support To Save His Life
Mr. Unhittable
Rookie Question Mark
Too Bad You Can't Get DLed For Sucking
Postsurgical Question Mark


Edit by way of a postscript:
I saw Gassner pitch a couple of times in spring training, and he was impressive. He's the right choice for the job, I just wish he weren't being called up to replace one of our top three, that's all...
