BALTIMORE — One day after putting Max Kepler on the injured list, the Twins might be without yet another outfielder.
Trevor Larnach was having trouble walking after being hit on his left foot by a Scott Barlow pitch during Sunday's loss to the Royals at Target Field, and he was placed in a walking boot to alleviate the pain, Rocco Baldelli said.
The rookie outfielder, who has batted .357 with two home runs over the past six games, is not in the lineup for Monday's Memorial Day matinee at Camden Yards. Kyle Garlick will start in his place, though Baldelli said that after a morning of treatment, "maybe [Larnach] could come in and help us. Maybe he'll feel better as the day goes on and that swelling goes down."
The Orioles have lost 13 straight games, and the Twins have beaten them in 15 consecutive games, just two away from Minnesota's franchise record against one foe. The Twins haven't played in Baltimore since April 20-21, 2019, when they hit 11 home runs, including a team-record eight in one game.
Today's game matches Jose Berrios against Orioles righthander Jorge Lopez. Here are the lineups for today's 12:05 p.m. start:
