The Minnesota Twins announced that they have placed outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day Injured List (retro to June 15) with a right wrist contusion, an injury he suffered after getting hit by a pitch on Friday vs. Kansas City. 

To replace Buxton on the 25-man roster, the Twins have recalled outfielder Jake Cave from Triple-A Rochester. Since being optioned from Minnesota in mid-May, Cave has appeared in 33 games for the Red Wings, hitting .326 (42-for-129) with 12 doubles, two triples, five home runs, 25 RBI, 25 runs scored and a .945 OPS. In 18 games for the Twins this season, he hit .220 (9-for-41) with two doubles and seven walks.


The Twins host Boston on Tuesday night, trying to end a 2-game losing streak.
