Twins placed outfielder Jason Kubel on the 60-day disabled list with an injured left knee.
Even though he was hurt before Lance Berkman and Rocco Baldell, Kubel is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered in the Arizona Fall League. The damage to his knee was so severe that there's no guarantee he'll show up at 100 percent next spring.
Since the rehab is so extensive, a difference in terms of a week or two isn't as big a deal as if it were for a shorter injury. I think it's pretty much on schedule, but that's really not saying much, since he won't be making an impact for a year.
