Twins 2B Hudson placed on disabled list

MINNEAPOLIS, June 8 (UPI) -- Minnesota Twins second baseman Orlando Hudson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with an injured wrist, the team said Tuesday.

Hudson hasn't played since May 30 when he collided with center fielder Denard Span during the final out of a game against the Texas Rangers. After waiting nine days, Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire said Hudson had been moved to the DL.

The wrist is the same one that was surgically repaired in 2008, but tests showed it doesn't need another operation.

"We just have to give him five or six more days and he should be ready to go," Gardenhire told the St. Paul Pioneer Press, "but if you try to go before then, it's probably not a good thing."

Minnesota reinstated outfielder Michael Cuddyer from the bereavement list to take Hudson's spot on the roster.
