Twins place Polanco on Injured List

The Minnesota Twins placed infielder Jorge Polanco on the 10-day Injured List on Saturday.

Polanco is battling left knee inflammation and this is his second time landing on the Injured List this season after missing time from June 13-28 with lower back tightness.

Polanco is hitting .235 with 16 home runs, 56 RBI and 54 runs scored in 104 games this season.

The Twins called up infielder Jermaine Palacios from Triple-A St. Paul to take Polanco’s place on the 28-man roster.
