Hardy Reinstated, Tolbert To The DL

As suspected, the Minnesota Twins placed utility infielder Matt Tolbert on the disabled list before today’s game to make room for shortstop J.J. Hardy on the active roster:

The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have returned infielder J.J. Hardy from his rehab assignment at Single-A Beloit and reinstated him from the 15-day disabled. He was placed on the disabled list on June 11 (retroactive to June 7) with a left wrist contusion and missed 20 games.

To make room for Hardy on the 25-man roster, the Twins have placed infielder Matt Tolbert on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 1) with a contusion to his right middle finger. Tolbert suffered in the injury in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game vs. the Detroit Tigers.
