Twins Place Byron Buxton on Disabled List
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN - The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have placed outfielder Byron Buxton on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb sprain (retro 6/25), an injury he suffered on Tuesday vs. the White Sox, attempting to steal second base.
To replace Buxton on the 25-man roster, the Twins have recalled infielder Danny Santana from Triple-A Rochester. Santana, who made the Twins Opening Day roster, has hit .308 (20-for-65) with six doubles, three triples and five RBI in 15 games for the Red Wings since being optioned by the Twins on June 7.
