Blackburn Set To Rejoin Twins Rotation

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Minnesota right-hander Nick Blackburn is set to rejoin the Twins’ starting rotation Tuesday night.

Blackburn felt a cramp in the back of his right shoulder April 14 against Texas. He threw a 52-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

Blackburn said he didn’t feel any discomfort while throwing and doesn’t foresee any lingering issues.

Boston right-hander Josh Beckett is the scheduled starter for the Red Sox on Tuesday, which is the second game of a three-game series.
