Larnach is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels due to swelling in his hand, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Larnach suffered the injury during Saturday's contest when he was hit by a pitch, and he'll sit Sunday to allow the swelling to subside. Brent Rookier will take over in left field for the Twins, while Josh Donaldson serves as the designated hitter.
Larnach is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.
Larnach will head to the bench for the first time since July 6 following a brutal 10-game stretch in which he went 5-for-38 with 19 strikeouts (46.3 percent rate). The Twins remain committed to giving Larnach everyday at-bats in spite of his recent struggles, but he'll get a chance to clear his head Tuesday. Gilberto Celestino replaces him in the Minnesota outfield.
Larnach is not starting Tuesday's game against the White Sox.
After a 1-for-4 performance Monday, Larnach is hitting .286 with two homers, three walks and eight RBI in his last 12 games. Alex Kirilloff will play left field Tuesday, with Miguel Sano starting at first base.

Larnach is slashing .274/.383/.442 with four home runs, 10 RBI, 15 runs scored and seven doubles across 137 plate appearances. He'll likely face competition for playing time in left field from Alex Kirilloff and Luis Arraez.
Larnach went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 7-5 extra-inning win over Texas.
The outfielder went yard in the fifth inning. Larnach has five hits in his last five games, and three of them have gone for extra bases (one homer, two doubles). The rookie is slashing a respectable .259/.375/.435 with four homers, 10 RBI and 14 runs scored across 128 plate appearances. His 30.5 percent strikeout rate is a bit high, but that's to be expected for a hard hitter.

Larnach (foot) is starting in right field and batting fifth Wednesday at Baltimore.
The 24-year-old didn't start Tuesday's contest due to the foot injury, though he still appeared off the bench and went 1-for-2 with a double. Larnach should continue seeing regular reps in Minnesota's outfield, especially with Rob Refsnyder (concussion) joining Byron Buxton (hip) and Max Kepler (hamstring) on the injured list Wednesday.
Larnach (foot) is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
It was reported Monday that Larnach was dealing with a foot issue. It's not entirely clear if Larnach's absence from Tuesday's lineup is due to the foot injury, or simply a product of the Twins facing left-hander Bruce Zimmermann. WIth that being said, it remains to be seen whether the outfielder could be an option for Rocco Baldelli off the bench.
Larnach isn't starting Monday against the Orioles after he fouled a ball off his foot Sunday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Larnach is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.
With lefty Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Chicago, Larnach and fellow lefty hitting outfielder Jake Cave will both head the bench, allowing the right-handed Kyle Garlick to pick up a starting nod in the corner outfield. With Luis Arraez returning from the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday to take over as the Twins' primary left fielder, one of Larnach or Cave will likely occupy the strong side of a platoon with Garlick in right field moving forward. It's unclear whether manager Rocco Baldelli favors Larnach or Cave for those duties at this point.
Larnach is starting Saturday's game against the Tigers.
Larnach was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, and he'll make his major-league debut in left field. With Alex Kirilloff (wrist) sidelined, Larnach should have the chance to carve out regular playing time in his absence since he's one of the Twins' top prospects.
Larnach was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Larnach was added to the major league roster after Byron Buxton went on the IL with a significant hip strain. With the Twins looking for offense in the outfield and Alex Kirilloff (wrist) also sidelined, Larnach could be set for regular playing time since he's one of Minnesota's top prospects. Larnach was 3-for-13 with two home runs in his first three games at Triple-A. He picked up where he left off in 2019, when he split time between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A Pensacola and slashed .309/.384/.458 over 127 games.
Larnach (hamstring) will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and will bat seventh Monday in the team's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.
Larnach will check back into the Twins' spring lineup for the first time since March 1, when he went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his Grapefruit League debut. He's been on the mend for the past two weeks with a hamstring injury, but Larnach evidently showed enough improvement for the Twins to give him the green light to start in an offense-only role. If Larnach's hamstring responds well to DH duty, he could get some work in as an outfielder later this week.
Larnach hasn't played in a spring training game since March 1 due to a strained hamstring, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "His spring got sidetracked a little bit with a fairly minor hamstring issue, but when there's really limited time in the spring to get ready and jump in these games, he hasn't had an opportunity to get out there," manager Rocco Baldelli said.
Larnach is only now getting ready to participate in live batting practice, which would seem to indicate his injury is more than minor. It's not clear if he will be ready for the start of the regular season, which may put him out of competition for a spot on the major-league roster. He should have the opportunity to make his MLB debut later this summer if he's able to pick up where he left off in 2019, when he split time between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A Pensacola and slashed .309/.384/.458 over 127 games.
