Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said the team will know Sunday morning whether Michael Cuddyer needs to go on the disabled list with the strained tendon in his left index finger.

“How many days it’s going to be? We’re not positive,” Gardenhire said. “Doctors said if he comes in tomorrow, and he feels a little better, then we’ve got maybe two or three days. But if he comes in and he’s still really sore, we’re looking at probably a DL thing. So we’ll find out more tomorrow.”

Alexi Casilla, who has a strained middle finger on his left hand, will probably be back in the lineup Sunday to face Ben Sheets, Gardenhire said.

“Lexi should be fine,” Gardenhire said. He does have a little strain of the ligament, but doctors seem to think they can tape that thing together and he’ll be fine.”
