The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have placed infielder Jorge Polanco on the 10-day Injured List with a left hamstring strain (retroactive to May 18).
Polanco has played in 23 games for the Twins this season, hitting .284 (27-for-95) with seven doubles, four home runs, 14 RBI, a .327 on-base percentage and an .811 OPS. This marks Polanco’s second stint on the Injured List in 2023 after missing the club’s first 19 games of the season with left knee inflammation.
To replace Polanco on the 26-man roster, the Twins have recalled infielder Edouard Julien from Triple-A St. Paul. Julien played in 22 games during his most recent stint with the Saints from April 21-May 19, hitting .286 (22-for-77) with seven doubles, two home runs, seven RBI, 17 runs scored, 20 walks, a .450 on-base percentage and a .905 OPS. This marks the 24-year-old’s second stint with the Twins this season, after playing in eight games with Minnesota from April 12-21, hitting .222 (6-for-27) with two home runs and four RBI, including making his major league debut on April 12 vs. the Chicago White Sox.
