More bad injury news for the Twins, as starter Scott Baker left Thursday's game against Detroit after two innings, and the team announced the reason was elbow pain. No more details were immediately available. Baker had a bout of tendinitis in the elbow earlier in the season.
Baker had won five consecutive decisions and hasn't lost since July 19. The 28-year-old right-hander is 12-9 with a 4.55 ERA. With the Twins trying to hold off Chicago in the American League Central, a sudden hole in their rotation is not not something they need.
The game was tied 2-2 when Baker left. He was replaced by Jeff Manship.
