MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -All-Star center fielder Torii Hunter left in the fourth inning of Minnesota's game against Detroit Wednesday night with an apparent injury to his left leg.
Hunter, who turned 32 on Wednesday, hit a groundball to shortstop that he beat out to avoid a double play after Michael Cuddyer was forced out at second base. After running through the bag, Hunter grimaced slightly as he came to a stop. Trainer Rick McWane and manager Ron Gardenhire checked on him, and he was replaced by Jason Kubel.
Hunter was excluded from the lineup for Sunday's game against Oakland as a precaution to rest a left hamstring that had been causing him mild soreness.
Kubel stayed in the game and went to left field, with Lew Ford moving to center.
