The Minnesota Twins placed struggling slugger Logan Morrison on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with a left hip impingement.

Shortstop Ehire Adrianza was reinstated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Morrison went 1-for-5 with his 11th home run of the season in playing all nine innings of the Twins' 8-5 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. Morrison, who has been bothered by the hip injury in recent weeks, is hitting .193 in 80 games this season, splitting time between first base and designated hitter.

The Twins signed Morrison to a one-year contract worth $6.5 million in February after the 30-year-old hit 38 home runs as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays last season. The deal includes a vesting option for 2019 that has performance bonuses that could push its overall value to $16.5 million over two years.

Adrianza returns from a minimum-length stint on the DL with a left hamstring strain. The 28-year-old has hit .261 with four home runs and 19 RBIs in 64 games with the Twins this season.
