Twins call up Walters to start against Tigers

DETROIT — The Minnesota Twins have called up right-hander P.J. Walters from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday against the Detroit Tigers.

The Twins optioned outfielder Oswaldo Arcia to Rochester after Friday night's loss to the Tigers. The 28-year-old Walters hasn't pitched in the majors this year. He went 2-5 with a 5.69 ERA in 12 starts for Minnesota in 2012.

Arcia, a rookie, has hit .255 with four home runs for the Twins.

Walters started the season with Rochester, where he was 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA.
