Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Twins placed shortstop J.J. Hardy on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist contusion today and recalled infielder Matt Tolbert from Class AAA Rochester.

Hardy injured the wrist on a slide into third base on May 4. He will be eligible to come off the DL on May 20, for the final game of the Twins' series at Boston.

Tolbert, who played third base for the Twins down the stretch last year, was batting .232 for Rochester.
