    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins continue their roadtrip with a stop in Detroit for at three game series this weekend against the Tigers. Ervin Santana (0-0 6.14 ERA) is still looking for his first win after coming off the disabled list as he starts for the Twins tonight. Jordan Zimmermann (4-4, 4.31 ERA) takes the mound for Detroit.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Twins placed left-handed pitcher Adalberto Mejia on the 10-day disabled list today with a left wrist strain that he sustained during his start Tuesday in Cleveland. Mejia went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA, four walks and nine strikeouts over 13 innings in his last three games, two of which were starts.

    To replace Mejia on the 25-man roster, the Twins recalled right-handed pitcher Tyler Duffey. Duffey, who appeared in seven games earlier this season for the Twins, recently appeared in 17 games for the Red Wings, going 1-3 with a 3.72 ERA, 13 walks and 30 strikeouts in 29 innings.

    Additionally, to take the vacated roster spot of right-handed pitcher Fernando Rodney, who was traded to Oakland last night, the Twins have recalled first baseman/outfielder Tyler Austin from Rochester. Austin was acquired via trade with the Yankees in exchange for Lance Lynn at the non-waiver trade deadline.

    The Timberwolves will open their home schedule at Target Center on Friday, October 19 against Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Minnesota's 82-game regular season schedule is highlighted by 13 nationally televised games.

     UNDATED (AP) - Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee. Guice was injured in Washington's preseason opener at New England on Thursday night. The team announced the prognosis today following an MRI, saying Guice should make a full recovery and be ready to play in 2019.
 
     Guice was expected to be the Redskins' starter after they selected him 59th overall in the draft. The LSU product was considered a first-round prospect and went late in the second.
 
     The team says tight end Manasseh Garner, a long shot to make the roster, is also out for the season with an ACL injury.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The NFL says a defective football was removed from play during the third quarter of the Steelers-Eagles game in Philadelphia and will be sent back to manufacturer Wilson for review. Questions about an underinflated football flared among fans online after Thursday's game when a sideline radio reporter tweeted that he saw a ball looking "VERY deflated" after an incompletion thrown by Pittsburgh rookie Mason Rudolph. A scandal over underinflated footballs during the 2015 AFC championship game got New England quarterback Tom Brady suspended for four games and prompted the NFL to change how it handles footballs before and during games.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have signed veteran left-hander Jorge De La Rosa and transferred righty Yu Darvish to the 60-day disabled list to make room for him on the 40-man roster. The Cubs also optioned left-hander Randy Rosario to Triple-A Iowa to create a spot for De La Rosa on the active roster.
 
     A 15-year veteran, De La Rosa has pitched in relief the past two seasons with Arizona after being used more as a starter earlier in his career. He was 0-2 with a 4.63 ERA in 42 appearances this season before the Diamondbacks designated him for assignment last week.
 
     The Cubs plan to have Darvish throw at least one more simulated game before going on a minor league rehab assignment. Signed to a $126 million, six-year contract in February, he has been sidelined since May 20 because of triceps and elbow injuries.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - The NL East-leading Philadelphia Phillies have acquired first baseman Justin Bour from the Miami Marlins for a minor league player. Bour is batting .227 with 19 homers and 54 RBIs. He's expected to be a pinch-hitter in Philadelphia where Carlos Santana is the starting first baseman in the first year of a $60 million, three-year contract. Single-A left-handed pitcher McKenzie Mills goes to Miami and the Phillies also received cash in the deal.

    DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed Dylan Larkin to a $30.5 million, five-year contract. The team announced the deal with the 22-year-old center today. Larkin was a restricted free agent.
 
     He led the team with a career-high 63 points and was third with 16 goals last season. He has 56 goals and 140 points over three seasons, playing in at least 80 games each year.
 
     Detroit drafted the Waterford, Michigan, native and former Wolverine with the No. 15 pick overall in 2014. He scored a career-high 23 goals and was an All-Star as a rookie.
 
     Larkin played for Team North America during the 2016 World Cup and has played for the U.S. in four world championships.

     UNDATED (AP) - Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski doesn't believe the NCAA coordinated its reforms well enough.
 
     Speaking two days after the governing body announced numerous changes following a high-profile corruption scandal in college basketball, Krzyzewski today said he approves the intent behind the changes but added that "they don't have a plan of execution."
 
     Among the notable changes, the NCAA included provisions allowing agent relationships. The NCAA proposes that a few high school players identified as elite prospects by USA Basketball be allowed to sign with agents beginning July 1 before their senior year. But the NBA would have to change its age-limit restrictions.
 
     Also, college players who sign with agents may return to school if undrafted, but only if they sought NBA advisory evaluations and participated in the league's scouting combine. That also would require tweaks to NBA and players' union rules.
