Twins banged up after 22 games


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins are having some early season health problems.

Three starters -- shortstop Cristian Guzman (sore knee), first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz (sore back) and right fielder Brian Buchanan (sore back) -- were held out of the lineup Thursday against Tampa Bay.

Backup catcher Tom Prince also has a sore wrist.

Designated hitter David Ortiz is on the disabled list and expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks to recover from arthroscopic surgery he had Thursday on his left knee to remove a bone chip.

Second baseman Luis Rivas and starting pitcher Joe Mays are also on the DL. Rivas, who broke a wrist when hit by a pitch in the second game of the season, is out at least another week. Mays has an inflamed right elbow and might not be available for two months.

At least this didn't happen to the Sox in 2001.

So that means there's a good chance they'll be healthy when the Sox face them in June.

This will test our very own Jerry's mettle as he insists they will win the division.
