Minnesota Twins places Grossman on 10 day disabled list due to injury
The injury occurred in the fourth inning as Grossman was running to second base on a double. It was his first base hit in a week.
Just as Robbie Grossman's bat seemed to be back on track, his body derailed his season, at least temporarily.
The Minnesota Twins on Monday placed the outfielder on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain he sustained Sunday during the club's 6-5 win against Kansas City. Outfielder Johnny Field, claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay on Friday, will take Grossman's place on the 25-man roster.
"I could feel it right away," he said of his leg injury after the game, according to the Star Tribune. "I told [manager Paul Molitor and athletic trainer Tony Leo] after the inning, but I thought I could play through it."
He did, and he singled in the seventh. But he was lifted for a pinch runner.
