Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins recalled pitcher Samuel Deduno from Triple-A Rochester and named him the starter for Friday's road test against the Detroit Tigers.

Deduno posted a 6-5 record with a 4.44 earned run average over 15 starts for the Twins last season.

Deduno was expected to start the season in Minnesota's rotation, but a groin injury sustained in the championship game of the World Baseball Classic as a member of the Dominican Republic forced the 29-year-old right-hander to begin the season in Rochester.

To make room for Deduno, the Twins transferred reliever Tim Wood to the 60-day disabled list. Wood hasn't pitched in the majors since 2011 with Pittsburgh.
