Twins' Hunter lands on disabled list

Postby WebHamster » Fri Apr 09, 2004 8:06 pm

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Minnesota Twins outfielder Torii Hunter was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a strained right hamstring.

Hunter suffered the injury while rounding the bases in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Cleveland Indians. The move is retroactive to Wednesday, meaning Hunter will be eligible to return on April 22.

The 28-year-old Hunter is batting .364 with four hits and one RBI in two games this season. He is the third Minnesota player to be shelved this week, joining designated hitter Matthew LeCroy and rookie catcher Joe Mauer.

The Twins are expected to recall Lew Ford from Triple-A Rochester to take Hunter's roster spot.

Last season for the Twins, Hunter batted .250 with 26 homers and 102 RBI in 154 games. He has captured a Gold Glove in each of the last three years and was an All-Star in 2002.

Meanwhile, the Twins announced that right-handed pitcher Michael Nakamura was claimed off waivers by Toronto.
