  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Back from injured list

    Garlick (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Galick has been sidelined just over two weeks by a strained left hamstring, but he'll rejoin the big-league roster after going 3-for-11 with a solo homer during a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A St. Paul. The 30-year-old won't immediately rejoin the lineup Sunday and will serve as a reserve outfielder now that he's healthy.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Making progress in rehab games

    Garlick (hamstring) has gone 1-for-5 over his first two rehab games for Triple-A St. Paul, and the Twins will decide his next step after he plays Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    It sounds like Garlick will be activated from the injured list after the weekend if all goes well. The 30-year-old has a .250/.324/.567 slash line through 68 plate appearances in the majors this year with six homers and 14 RBI.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Set for rehab stint

    Garlick (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick has been on the 10-day injured list since June 4 due to a left hamstring strain, but he's making steady progress and will clear another hurdle Wednesday by embarking on a rehab stint. He figures to need at least a few games in the minors before being activated from the IL.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Garlick (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to June 4.

    Garlick sustained a left hamstring strain during Friday's win in Toronto and will be forced to miss at least a week and a half due to the injury. It's not yet clear when Garlick will be able to return to game action, but Gilberto Celestino should see a slight uptick in playing time as outfield depth.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Still out Sunday

    Garlick (hamstring) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    He suffered a left hamstring strain after hitting two homers in Friday's game and hasn't played since. Prior to the two-homer game, Garlick had hit .194 with one home run over his last 14 games.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: On bench Saturday

    Garlick (hamstring) isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Garlick was dominant during Friday's win over Toronto, as he went 3-for-3 with two homers and three RBI. However, he exited the game with a mild left hamstring strain and won't be in the lineup a day later. Nick Gordon, Mark Contreras and Trevor Larnach will start in the outfield from left to right.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Hits two homers, gets injured

    Garlick left Friday's game against the Blue Jays with a mild left hamstring strain, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. He went 3-for-3 with two home runs before suffering the injury.

    Garlick, who was playing because Max Kepler (unvaccinated) is ineligible to play in Toronto, may have had the best game of his career before suffering this injury. It's unclear how much more time Garlick will be forced to miss.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Leading off against lefty

    Garlick will start in left field and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Despite striking out three times in four plate appearances while starting in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader, Garlick will be elevated to the leadoff spot for the first time this season. The leadoff assignment comes while the Twins are opposing a left-handed starting pitcher (Tarik Skubal), but the righty-hitting Garlick will likely continue to find himself on the bench in most games when Minnesota faces righties.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Activated from injured list

    Garlick (calf) was activated off the injured list Monday.

    Garlick's return gives the Twins another corner outfield bat. He homered three times in just 26 trips to the plate before straining his right calf in early May. He should be able to provide a bit of pop again going forward, though he doesn't have a path to an everyday role. Mark Contreras was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Could return from IL shortly

    Garlick (calf) is 3-for-9 with a double in two games for Triple-A St. Paul. He will travel to be with the Twins in Oakland, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    It sounds like Garlick will activated from the IL as early as Monday, but the exact timetable isn't certain. He could immediately fit into the mix in left field.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Rehab assignment begins Friday

    Garlick (calf) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Garlick has been on the injured list since May 2, but he'll now return to minor-league game action. Assuming he feels good after playing in rehab games, the 30-year-old will likely be cleared to rejoin the Twins in the coming days.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Nearing rehab assignment

    Interim manager Jayce Tingler said Wednesday that Garlick (calf) could begin a rehab assignment in the near future, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick landed on the injured list with a strained right calf May 2, but he's recently ramped up his rehab program and is nearing game action. Given it's been a relatively short absence, the 30-year-old shouldn't require much time in the minors to get back up to speed.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Moves to IL

    The Twins placed Garlick on the 10-day injured list Monday with a right calf strain.

    Garlick's move to the IL doesn't come as a major surprise after manager Rocco Baldelli suggested that the injury the outfielder sustained in Sunday's win over the Rays was more than a minor concern. The degree of Garlick's calf strain isn't known, but he'll likely be sidelined for more than the minimum amount of time if he isn't able to resume baseball activities within the next few days.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Injury somewhat concerning

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Sunday's win over the Rays that Garlick's (calf) injury isn't "the most minor of occurrences," Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick exited Sunday's matchup in the third inning due to right calf tightness, and Baldelli's assessment seems to indicate that there's a possibility the outfielder will require an IL stint. If the 30-year-old is forced to miss additional time, Gilberto Celestino and Nick Gordon would presumably serve as the top depth options in Minnesota's outfield.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Exits with tight calf

    The Twins announced that Garlick was removed in the third inning of Sunday's game in Tampa Bay due to right calf tightness, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. He went 1-for-1 with a base hit, a walk and a run before departing.

    Garlick's injury looked to have occurred at some point during his second plate appearance of the afternoon. After taking his base upon drawing a walk, Garlick was visited by a trainer before Trevor Larnach came off the bench to pinch run for him. The 30-year-old can be viewed as day-to-day with the injury.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Picks up injury Sunday

    Garlick was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays in the top of the third inning with an undisclosed injury, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick, who was coming off a two-home run performance in Saturday's 9-1 win, followed up that big effort with a base hit, a walk and a run across his two plate appearances. The injury in question cropped up after his second trip to the plate, as Trevor Larnach checked in from the bench to pinch run for Garlick after he drew the walk. Expect the Twins to provide an update on Garlick's condition after the game.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Starting again after two-homer game

    Garlick will serve as Minnesota's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Sunday's game against the Rays.

    After going 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Saturday's 9-1 win, Garlick will be rewarded with a second straight start. With southpaw Josh Fleming on the hill for Tampa Bay, lefty-hitting Trevor Larnach will bow out of the lineup to make room for Garlick, who could fill a short-side platoon role in the outfield or at designated hitter while Miguel Sano (knee) and Alex Kirilloff (wrist) are banged up.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Homers in victory

    Garlick went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in the win over the Red Sox on Monday.

    Garlick opened the scoring in this one, launching a home run off Rich Hill in the top of the first inning, scoring Carlos Correa in the process. The homer was his first hit since having his contract selected by the Twins on Friday. With Alex Kirilloff (wrist) on the 10-day injured list, Garlick will pick up the occasional start in the outfield.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Contract selected by Minnesota

    Garlick's contract was selected by the Twins on Friday.

    Garlick failed to break camp with the big-league club this year, and he went 3-for-13 with a homer, a triple, four RBI, two runs and four walks in four games at Triple-A St. Paul to begin the season. With Alex Kirilloff (wrist) on the 10-day injured list, Garlick will provide additional depth in the Twins' outfield.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Opening season in minors

    The Twins reassigned Garlick to Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday.

    After Brent Rooker was sent to San Diego earlier Thursday as part of a four-player deal, Garlick looked to have secured a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder. Minnesota ultimately chose to go in a different direction, as Gilberto Celestino was instead recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to provide depth behind Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and Alex Kirilloff. Garlick has been the better hitter of the two players during their respective tenures in the minors, but Celestino's speed and ability to play all three outfield spots may have been the main factor in him securing the spot on the Opening Day roster.
