Scott Baker Injury Woes Continues In Rehab Start For Minnesota Twins Pitcher

Scott Baker was expected to be in the rotation for the Minnesota Twins this season, but another injury setback won't help him move back to the Twin Cities any time soon. Baker injured himself once again on Thursday night in a rehab start for the Fort Myers Miracle.

It's unclear exactly what caused him to be yanked after just 11 pitches, but the Star Tribune's Joe Christensen was able to get a bit of clarification in an email from general manager Terry Ryan.

"Baker just didn't feel right tonight," Twins GM Terry Ryan said in an e-mail. "He couldn't seem to get loose on the mound and instead of pushing the envelope, we decided we would go get him out of the game. We will evaluate him again tomorrow."

Baker's currently on the disabled list due to tendinitis in his elbow, an injury that's popped up for him quite a bit since 2010. It'll be interesting to see what happens in the future regarding his status.
