Minnesota Twins place C.J. Cron on Injured List

The Minnesota Twins lost another starter to injury today when they placed first baseman C.J. Cron on the injured list with right thumb inflammation.

The Minnesota Twins injured list continues to grow as C.J. Cron is the latest Twin to fall victim to injury. According to manager Rocco Baldelli, Cron has been dealing with the injury for quite some time. With the All-Star break days away, the team figured it would be in the best interest of C.J. to give him some extra time to rest and heal.

In order to fill his spot on the active roster, the Minnesota Twins called up outfielder LaMonte Wade Jr for his second stint in the majors.
