MILWAUKEE -- Twins left fielder Delmon Young was carted off the field after suffering a sprained right ankle in the fifth inning of Saturday's game against the Brewers.

The Twins placed Young on the 15-day day disabled list and recalled outfielder Rene Tosoni from Class AAA Rochester.

Young was on crutches after the 11-1 loss and will have an MRI exam on Monday. He said he sprained the same ankle in 2003, before being drafted, and that one was worse.

Young smashed his right foot into the left-field wall, trying to catch a deep fly ball from Yuniesky Betancourt, who continued rounding the bases for an inside-the-park home run that gave Milwaukee a 7-1 lead.

Young appeared to get his right food stuck beneath the out-of-town scoreboard on the wall. He fell to the ground and grabbed the leg in obvious pain.

Young had X-Rays taken at the ballpark, and they showed no broken bones.
