Chris Parmelee is officially listed as "day-to-day" with a groin injury for the Minnesota Twins.

The Minnesota Twins chose to roll without Chris Parmelee on Monday when they played the Cleveland Indians, and they did just fine, securing a 7-2 win to make it three straight wins. Ray Richardson of the Pioneer Press reports that Parmelee was sidelined due to soreness in his groin area.

According to the piece, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Parmelee "felt something" on Sunday when he was chasing a ball to right center field (an eventual triple for Jason Donald). Parmelee was officially listed as "day-to-day" and Matt Carson made the start on Monday night.

Carson had one hit and one run in four at-bats on Monday, with one strikeout. He played well overall, but the Twins really would like to get Parmelee back. He's been playing well since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester at the end of August. He's batting .349 and has three home runs and 11 RBIs since that point.

There's no further word on whether or not the injury will continue to keep Parmelee out. The Twins begin a three-game set against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday.
