Minnesota Twins places Grossman on 10 day disabled list due to injury

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.

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.

"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.

The 28-year-old Grossman has hit .253 with 17 doubles, four home runs, and 34 RBIs in 92 games this season.

Field, 26, who had been with Triple-A Rochester, played 63 games this season with the Rays and hit .213 with nine doubles, six home runs, and 14 RBIs.
