 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Minnesota Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer missed his second straight game Thursday night with a bruised back.
Cuddyer had X-rays, which were negative, before Minnesota played Tampa Bay. The Twins had hoped Cuddyer would returned to the lineup Thursday against the Devil Rays.
``Not good. It's sorer today than it was yesterday,'' Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. ``He feels it more today than yesterday.''
Cuddyer was hurt on a strange play in the sixth inning of Tuesday's game with Tampa Bay. Cuddyer lost his balance rounding second base on Justin Morneau's two-out single and did a forward roll before being tagged out by third baseman Ty Wigginton. Cuddyer left one inning later.
