Orlando Hudson to the DL: Twins vs. Royals 6/8
By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com
MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins have placed Orlando Hudson on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left wrist (retroactive to May 31) and they’ve reinstated outfielder Michael Cuddyer from the bereavement list.
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said that Hudson visited the doctor in Arizona who performed his 2008 surgery. Everything was fine with his surgically-repaired wrist but the doctor agreed with the Twins physicians that he needs to rest the wrist for a few more days.
So Cuddyer will take Hudson’s spot on the roster for now. Hudson will be eligible to return from the DL on June 15.
J.J. Hardy was not placed on the DL, instead undergoing a cortisone shot in his left wrist on Tuesday. Hardy underwent another MRI and it showed that the bone bruise is still there. But since the medication Hardy started taking last weekend has helped his wrist, they felt this could help him to be ready to return to the club either Thursday or Friday.
Justin Morneau is also back in the lineup after missing two days with the stomach flu. Gardenhire said that Morneau is still working to get his strength back but he’s ready to play.

Hey Kelly, You have two DHs listed. Is it going to be Kubel or Thome tonight?
I’m confused, they put Hudson on the DL, who did they call up?
Also, do you think there is a chance Jacques Jones will be called up this season?
