Twins-A’s: Crede’s shoulder flares up again, will see super specialist Lewis Yocum in L.A.

Not good news for Joe Crede and the Twins.

Crede had to call trainer Rick McWane during the night because the pain in his shoulder was the worst it’s been since he first had problems with his A/C joint over the weekend. There’s also some numbness in his hand.

Crede said his shoulder barked on him in the eighth inning when as he popped up to short and worsened after he arrived a the team hotel.

So Crede will be examined tomorrow morning by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles. He’ll probably undergo an MRI exam. He’s hoping the diagnosis will lead to a speedy recovery. We’ll see.

Justin Morneau is getting a DH day, with Jason Kubel in left field and the Bushman at first base.

A’s pitcher Trevor Cahill has good stuff, but the word is that he has trouble repeating his mechanics and doesn’t pitch inside enough. We’ll see.
