Injuries loom over Twins victory

The Twins got an important, come-from-behind victory over Detroit on Tuesday night, but injury concerns kept them from celebrating it too much.

Outfielder Jason Kubel was hit on the left wrist with a fastball in the seventh. X-rays didn't show anything broken, but it sounds like it's something that will cost him at least a few days.

Brian Fuentes, the reliever acquired from the Angels just three days earlier, was unable to enter the game after his lower back froze up while he was warming in the bullpen. He's had trouble with the back in the past, but doesn't think this tweak is going to be a long-term setback.

Second baseman Orlando Hudson has been struggling with a foot injury for a few days, and manager Ron Gardenhire sent him for another examination after watching him hobble around during Tuesday's game. Hudson made an error that allowed an unearned run.

"I think we all saw that he wasn’t moving very well," Gardenhire said. "He says he’s fine, but that’s not fine. That’s not good enough for me."

The Twins are already playing without All-Star Justin Morneau, who is out indefinitely with a concussion, and have starter Kevin Slowey and infielder Nick Punto on the disabled list as well.
