Couldn’t have picked a worse time for this to happen.

Narrowly holding onto a 1 game lead in the AL Central, the Minnesota Twins have found out that they might be without their best hitter for a period of time.

The team confirmed Friday that they have listed DH Nelson Cruz as day-to-day after the All-Star slugger strained his left wrist on Thursday night.

Cruz sustained the injury when he swung and missed on a 2-1 fastball by Mike Clevinger in the fourth inning of the team’s 7-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians. After he grimaced in pain at the batters box, coaches and training staff came to check on him and then removed him from the game immediately after.

The 39-year old is putting up big numbers in his first season with the Twins, posting a .294 batting average, 1.035 OPS, 32 homers and 76 RBI in 87 games.

Losing Cruz for a significant time could potentially cost them their number 1 spot in the standing by seasons end.
