The Minnesota Twins placed right-hander Derek Law on the 10-day injured list — retroactive to July 14 — on Saturday with right shoulder impingement.

In addition, the Twins also placed left-hander Danny Coulombe on the paternity list.

Law, 30, has a 4.20 ERA in nine appearances this season. Coulombe, 31, is 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA in six games — one start — this year.

In corresponding moves, the Twins recalled right-hander Beau Burrows and selected the contract of right-hander Juan Minaya from Triple-A St. Paul.

The Twins will also add left-hander Charlie Barnes as their 27th man for Saturday’s doubleheader against the host Detroit Tigers. Barnes, 25, is 5-2 with a 3.88 ERA in 11 starts for St. Paul this season and will be making his major league debut.

To make room for Minaya and Barnes on the 40-man roster, the Twins transferred left-hander Devin Smeltzer (left elbow inflammation) and right-hander Randy Dobnak (right middle finger strain) to the 60-day injured list.
