Twins put Sonny Gray on IL with hamstring strain

The injury bug is continuing to bite the Minnesota Twins early this season.

Sunday, the team placed pitcher Sonny Gray on the 10-day injured list with a low-grade, right hamstring strain.

Gray left Saturday’s game after 1.2 innings due to the injury.

He was acquired by the Twins during spring training in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds.

Just 10 days into the season, Minnesota is already dealing with injuries to Byron Buxton, Alex Kirilloff, Jorge Alcala and now Gray, with only Buxton currently avoiding the injured list.

To take Gray’s spot on the roster, the Twins activated pitcher Cody Stashak from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the injured list.

Stashak has missed the entire season thus far with right biceps tendinitis.

The Twins entered Sunday’s game against Boston with a 3-5 record.
