Injury Update On Minnesota Twins Star Second Baseman

Minnesota Twins infielder Jorge Polanco has been dealing with left knee inflammation for some time, which has kept him sidelined during the spring season.

However, on Thursday, he made his debut in a minor league rehab assignment with Low-A Fort Myers. During the game, he played second base for five innings, going 1-for-3 with two strikeouts while batting second in the lineup.

Polanco's performance during his rehab assignment will be closely monitored, and it's expected that he will need a couple of weeks to fully prepare before he can rejoin the Minnesota Twins' lineup. However, if all goes well, he could potentially be back with the team before the end of next week.

It's important to note that Polanco has been struggling with his left knee for some time now, so the Twins are likely being extra cautious and making sure he takes the necessary time to fully recover and avoid any setbacks.

The 29-year-old had a down year last season as he dealt with knee injuries, finishing with a .235/.346/.405 triple-slash line, 16 home runs, 56 RBIs, three stolen bases, and 54 runs scored across 104 games played. Photo Credit: Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports
