Mitch Garver hopeful to return to Twins in very near future

Catcher Mitch Garver should rejoin Twins in the very near future. He’s currently rehabbing with the St. Paul Saints after being sidelined with a groin injury that occurred on June 1st.

Garver is recovering after being hit by a foul ball in his groin. The forceful impact on his protective cup was such that Garver required surgery that night, for what he describes as a groin contusion.

"This was an injury that goes beyond baseball. I’m happy with how I’m feeling and with any luck, I’m hoping to join Minnesota in about a week," said Garver.

In 41 games prior to injury, Garver was hitting .224 with 8 home runs and 17 runs batted in, with 26 hits. Since then, Ryan Jeffers and Ben Rortvedt have been filling in for him with the Twins.

Garver had a previously scheduled day off Friday with the Saints.
