Mike Redmond injured his right groin on his fifth-inning double in tonight’s 6-1 loss to Seattle, a potential blow to a Twins team already missing catcher Joe Mauer.
“I’m a little concerned,” Redmond said. “A little more than normal. I never go in the training room. I’ve never pulled a muscle, or anything.”
Redmond was expected to handle most of the catching duties until Mauer returns from the disabled list. The Twins have Jose Morales on the roster, and Drew Butera at Class AAA Rochester.
“I know the situation we’re in, of course,” Redmond said. “We’re just going to wait and see and hopefully it feels better tomorrow. Hopefully it’s just a little cramp and we’ll see tomorrow.”
