Twins activate Hunter

Postby WebHamster » Sun Apr 25, 2004 2:00 pm

Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins have activated centerfielder Torii Hunter from the 15-day disabled list prior to Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals.

Hunter, who has missed two weeks with a strained right hamstring, sustained the injury while running the bases in an April 6 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Lew Ford, who replaced Hunter has been a pleasant surprise, batting .391 with three homers and 15 RBI since being recalled from Rochester of the International League when Hunter was put on the DL.

Minnesota manager Rod Gardenhire has stated that he will find playing time for Ford even with Hunter back in the starting lineup.

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.

To make room for Hunter, Minnesota optioned lefthander Carlos Pulido to Rochester. In six appearances with the Twins, Pulido posted a 8.74 ERA without recording any decision.
