SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO -- Outfielder Byron Buxton was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday after missing a second straight game because of a migraine.

Outfielder Ryan LaMarre, who was already with the team as a special 26th man for the Puerto Rico Series, was moved to the 25-man roster. The Twins will have one less player for Wednesday's game.

Buxton's move is retroactive to April 15, the furthest they can backdate such a  move to.

The Twins were ready to put Buxton in the lineup on Tuesday when he arrived at Hiram Bithorn stadium showing symptoms and was sent back to the team hotel.

"You could tell he wasn't right when he came in," Molitor said. "He got checked out and we sent him back to the hotel."

Twins catcher Jason Castro, who has had migraine issues of his own, knows what Byron Buxton is going through.

"I have then very infrequently, but I can sympathize with what he is going through," Castro said. "The thing is there is nothing you can do, just isolate yourself and hope that it goes away."

Just like on Tuesday, Max Kepler started in center while Robbie Grossman started in right field and batted eighth. LaMarre can play all three outfield spots, making the move a no-brainer.


Both teams have been told that everything will be done to make sure this game in played despite the power outages throughout the island. Several generators have been hooked up to the stadium.
