Ryan Braun has flown to Los Angeles in order to receive another cryotherapy shot in his right thumb.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell said it's a pre-planned thing rather than Braun having a setback. Obviously, it's something to keep a close eye on, though, with Braun having hit just .194/.242/.226 over his last seven games. It's possible he'll be ready to play by Friday, but Counsell isn't counting on Braun until Sunday.
Twins recalled RHP Michael Tonkin from Triple-A Rochester.
He'll be the 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. Tonkin has put up a 5.14 ERA with seven strikeouts over seven relief innings with the big club this season.
Red Sox recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Pawtucket.
He'll serve as the 26th man during Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Twins. Ross holds a 5.29 ERA and 1.53 WHIP across 15 relief appearances for the Red Sox this season.
Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is expected to sit out again Wednesday.
Hamilton is dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring and will miss a second straight game. It's not viewed as a big deal, as the outfielder remains day-to-day.
Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is hoping to start on Saturday versus the Brewers.
Nolasco departed his last outing with a right ankle impingement. He'll throw a bullpen session Thursday to see if he can give it a go Saturday, but Twins manager Paul Molitor was told by the club's trainers that it's 50/50 as to whether Nolasco will be ready or if he'll need a disabled list stint.
