Twins’ Logan Morrison goes on 10-day DL with left hip injury

The Minnesota Twins have placed designated hitter/first baseman Logan Morrison on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip injury.

The move was made before Minnesota’s game Thursday against Tampa Bay, making room for utility infielder Ehire Adrianza’s reinstatement from the 10-day disabled list.

Morrison is batting just .193 in his first season with the Twins, with a .654 OPS and 11 home runs and 31 RBIs in 264 at-bats. He described his problem as chronic and said before the game he’s planning to return when he’s eligible July 22.

Adrianza, who was out with a strained left hamstring, is hitting .261 with four home runs and 19 RBIs in 188 at-bats. He missed only 10 games.

Lauer struck out a career-high eight and walked two in wholesale nfl jerseys winning consecutive starts for the first time. He also had his ninth pickoff of the season, nabbing Muncy in the second after a leadoff walk.

His homer Tuesday night, to left-center on a 2-1 pitch off Rich Hill, (2-4), was his eighth overall.

I thought about it at 1 o’clock. I thought about it at 2 o’clock. I thought about it at 3 o’clock. I thought about it at 4 o’clock, Francona said Wednesday, still coping with the Indians’ shocking — and embarrassing — 7-4 loss to Cincinnati. Between 6 and 8 I actually slept.

He wasn’t the only one with insomnia.

Francona and several of his coaches had trouble moving past a communication breakdown that helped the Reds score seven runs in the ninth inning. As the Reds were rallying, Francona wanted to bring in left-hander Oliver Perez to face slugger Joey Votto with two out, the bases loaded and the Indians clinging to a 4-3 lead. But pitching coach Carl Willis thought he heard Francona tell him to summon right-hander Dan Otero.

Votto promptly hit a three-run double off Otero, giving the Reds a 6-4 lead.

He thought I said OT, Francona said, using Otero’s nickname. I said OP.

Whatever was said, it wasn’t OK as the Indians suffered their fourth consecutive loss and intensified discussion about a beleaguered bullpen that dropped to 5-16 with an American League-worst 5.37 ERA.
