MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The sputtering Minnesota Twins have shelved another regular.
They placed first baseman Miguel Sanó on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring.
Sanó is batting .111 with two home runs and 20 strikeouts in 45 at-bats.
Shortstop Andrelton Simmons, right fielder Max Kepler and left fielder Kyle Garlick are three of the five players currently on Minnesota’s COVID-19 injured list.
Infielder Travis Blankenhorn and catcher Tomás Telis were also returned to the team’s alternate training site.
Outfielders Alex Kirilloff and Tzu-Wei Lin and infielder Nick Gordon were promoted to fill the open spots.
