One day after coming off the 15-day injured list, Minnesota Twins reliever Danny Coulombe landed back on the list Saturday with the same left hip impingement.

The 32-year-old left-hander came in to start the fourth inning in Friday night’s 10-7 win against the visiting Kansas City Royals. He allowed one run on two hits with two walks and retired only one batter.

Coulombe has pitched in 10 games out of the Minnesota bullpen this season and has a 1.46 ERA and no decisions.

The Twins also recalled lefty Jovani Moran, selected the contract of right-hander Juan Minaya from Triple-A St. Paul and optioned right-hander Yennier Cano to St. Paul.

Moran, 25, was with Minnesota from May 2-6 and tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings with no walks and five strikeouts.

Minaya, 31, is 0-1 with a 6.06 ERA and three saves in 11 appearances this season with St. Paul.

Cano, 28, made his major league debut on May 11 and posted a 13.50 ERA in six games, allowing 11 runs on 12 hits in 7 1/3 innings.
