Thome, Kubel join crowded Twins DL

The Twins said Wednesday they'd be putting one player on the disabled list on Thursday.

Jim Thome or Jason Kubel, they said.

Thursday, the Twins made their announcement. Thome is on the DL. Kubel is, too.

It's been that kind of year in Minnesota.

As Minneapolis Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse pointed out, there have already been 15 players who have seen time with both the Twins and the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings. It's still 15, because Ben Revere and Luke Hughes (called up to replace Thome and Kubel) were with the Twins earlier this season, but would go to 16 if the Twins call up Brian Dinkelman (as has been reported) on Friday.

Kubel has a strained left foot. Thome, who is seven home runs shy of 500 for his career, has a strained left quadriceps.

The Twins are 20 games under .500 (17-37), for the first time since the end of the 2000 season. The last time they were this bad this early in a season was 1995, when they started 17-37, on the way to 88 losses and last place.

Now, the Twins are without their opening day catcher (Joe Mauer), second baseman (Tsuyoshi Nishioka) and designated hitter (Kubel), as well as their closer (Joe Nathan), their second starter (Francisco Liriano), their biggest bat off the bench (Thome) and another reliever/spot starter (Kevin Slowey). Mauer and Nishioka played in an extended spring training game Thursday.

Opening day left fielder Delmon Young also spent time on the disabled list, and while first baseman Justin Morneau, he has been slowed by health problems.
