The Twins' outfield depth took another hit ahead of Sunday's 1:10 p.m. game at Target Field.

Max Kepler entered the 10-day Injured List with a left hamstring strain, leaving the team without its starting right fielder and backup center fielder. Kepler had been dealing with the injury for a few weeks and had taken more rest days or played at designated hitter because of it. But he left Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals in the second inning after pulling up short trying to run out a ground ball to first.

In his place, the Twins recalled catcher Ben Rortvedt from Triple-A St. Paul. Rortvedt will actually start Sunday's game at catcher. He recently backed up Mitch Garver from April 30 to May 21.

For Sunday's game, right-handed pitcher Matt Shoemaker (2-5, 5.48 ERA) against Kansas City's righty Brad Keller (4-4, 5.72). The lineups are below.
