The Minnesota Twins have finalized their overhauled coaching staff, hiring two familiar former players and a well-regarded minor league teacher to assist manager Ron Gardenhire.
Minnesota's Justin Morneau won't play again this season because of concussion symptoms and a cyst that needs to be surgically removed.
Justin Morneau was back in the Minnesota Twins' starting lineup Tuesday night against Baltimore after missing the previous two games with a foot injury.
The Minnesota Twins say outfielders Jason Kubel and Denard Span will not make the trip with the team to San Francisco next week because of injuries.
On the disabled list with another leg problem, Minnesota Twins All-Star catcher Joe Mauer says he has no plans to make a position change anytime soon.
Coming off of arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, Joe Mauer tried to take it easy in spring training to conserve his legs for the rigors of catching in the regular season.
A seven-day disabled list for concussions wouldn't have done Aaron Hill much good when the Toronto Blue Jays second baseman missed the final four months of 2008 with the injury.
"Our plan is to take care of the orthopedic problems that he has and hopefully get him healthy as soon as possible," said Rick McWane, Minnesota's head athletic trainer.
McWane said right-hander Scott Baker, on the disabled list with a flexor strain in his pitching elbow, started his throwing program.
