The Minnesota Twins recalled left-hander Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday against the Chicago White Sox in place of the ailing Kyle Gibson.

Gibson played long toss from 120 feet and threw in the bullpen Friday. He'll try to start Tuesday in Kansas City.

The right-hander originally was scheduled to pitch Wednesday against Cleveland but was scratched the day before due to lower back stiffness. Gibson is 8-8 with a 4.19 ERA in 19 starts.

Darnell, who was 5-5 with a 3.43 ERA for Rochester, will be making his first major league start. To make room for Darnell, Minnesota optioned shortstop Jorge Polanco to Double-A New Britain.
