Josh Donaldsons injury problems in Minnesota advanced Opening Day, with a brand-new leg disorder.
Donaldson signed up the Twins very first hit, and then right away came up limp while rounding very first base, getting the back of his leg in the procedure. The 35-year-old missed out on much of last season with calf injuries, and the brand-new concern appears to be of a similar range, though the Twins have yet to discuss the matter.
The Twins are anticipated to contend for the AL Central crown.
While much remains up in the air, the Twins and Chicago White Sox were deemed the preseason favorites for the Central. The Sox have actually not been shy about flaunting their hype, with Tim Anderson even going as far as to say they expect to be on the planet Series this year.
A long-term injury to Eloy Jimenez is anticipated to keep him out 4-5 months, at the really least. That unlocks for a team like the Twins, who were floating under the radar.
Should they be without Donaldson at all this year, though, that brings their status as a competitor into concern.
As the Twins highest-paid gamer, much of Minnesotas offensive success depends on Donaldsons health. Considering its Opening Day, its reasonable to say things havent gone according to prepare up until now.
