Injury likely to shelve Twins’ Danny Santana for season
CLEVELAND — Minnesota Twins center fielder Danny Santana will likely miss the remainder of the season with an injured left shoulder.
Santana got hurt on Sunday in Toronto when he collided with teammate Robbie Grossman while trying to make a catch. The team placed him on the disabled list Monday. He was sent back to Minneapolis for tests, which revealed a Grade 2 sprain.
Manager Paul Molitor said before Wednesday’s game that Santana will need more than a month to recover, so the team is leaning toward shutting him down for the final month.
A switch-hitter, Santana batting .240 with two homers, 14 RBI and 12 steals this season.
