The Minnesota Twins were hopeful that a forearm injury wouldn't prevent Cole De Vries from making his first start of the season on Sunday. As it turns out, De Vries will be shut down for the time being.
Twins general manager Terry Ryan told reporters in Baltimoreon Friday that De Vries has been scratched from Sunday's start and will be placed on the 15-man disabled list.
