Crain up, Mulvey down. Perkins to see Yocum, too.

The Twins have recalled righthnder Jesse Crain, who was 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in 12 games with Class AAA Rochester since being sent down. Righthander Kevin Mulvey, who made two appearances in this series, was sent back to Rochester.

“We needed another pitcher,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. 

But the other development is that Glen Perkins informed the staff after the game that he’s been having problems with his shoulder when he starts warming up. He says he’s fine once he gets warmed up but felt he should let the meidcal staff know about it now.

So Perkins will join Joe Crede on a visit to Dr. Lewis Yocum tomorrow.
