Cuddyer at 2B: Twins at Mariners 5/31

By: Kelly Thesier/

SEATTLE — Happy Memorial Day, everyone. I had a large group of service men and women on my flight to Seattle today and it was a real privilege to get to clap as they exited the plane before the rest of the passengers.

I had an update earlier on the blog about second baseman Orlando Hudson, who is scheduled to join the team in Seattle on Tuesday. A CT scan of Hudson’s surgically-repaired left wrist showed no new injuries and that’s good news for the Twins.

But with Hudson out tonight, Michael Cuddyer is getting his first start at second base since July 23, 2005.
