Twins’ Casilla injures left ankle

Alexi Casilla left the Minnesota Twins game with a injured left
ankle.

Casilla scored from second base on a single by Joe Mauer in the
third inning against the Cleveland Indians. He appeared to jam his
left ankle in a slight collision with the left foot of catcher
Chris Gimenez, whose leg was extended to block the plate. Casilla
beat the throw by several feet, but slid anyway.

Casilla was replaced by Trevor Plouffe at second base in the
bottom half of the inning.

On Friday night, Casilla had a career-high four RBI in
Minnesota’s 7-6.
