Updating an earlier report, Ehire Adrianza suffered a strained right oblique in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.
Adrianza was believed to be dealing with a foot injury but it's actually his oblique that's bothering him. Twins manager Paul Molitor described the injury as "fairly acute," but wouldn't give a timetable for his return. Adrianza is a near lock to begin on the year on the disabled list. Mar 25 - 9:33 PM

Ehire Adrianza left Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles after fouling a ball off his foot.

It's the second day in a row a Twins player has injured himself fouling a ball off his foot after Kennys Vargas did the same thing on Friday (that was also against Baltimore). Adrianza grounded out in his only at-bat before exiting. Benji Gonzalez replaced Adrianza at second base in the bottom half of the third inning.

Twins claimed INF Ehire Adrianza off waivers from the Brewers.

In a corresponding move, they designated RHP Pat Light for assignment to clear room on their 40-man roster. The Brewers had just claimed Adrianza off waivers from the Giants last week. The 27-year-old hit .254/.299/.381 with two home runs in 40 games for the Giants last year. He has a .220 career batting average in 154 games spread across four seasons. He will serve as minor league depth for the Twins.

Brewers designated INF Ehire Adrianza for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Jesus Aguilar on the 40-man roster. Adrianza was just claimed off waivers from the Giants earlier this week, but his stint with the team might not last long.

Brewers claimed INF Ehire Adrianza off waivers from the Giants.

Adrianza was designated for assignment with the Giants signed Nick Hundley last week. The 27-year-old batted .254/.299/.381 with two home runs and seven RBI over 71 plate appearances in the majors last season and will provide some infield depth going into spring training.

Giants designated INF Ehire Adrianza for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Nick Hundley on the 40-man roster. Adrianza, 27, batted .254/.299/.381 with two home runs and seven RBI over 71 plate appearances with the Giants in 2016.
Jan 24 - 2:39 PM

Giants avoided arbitration with INF Ehire Adrianza, agreeing to a one-year contract.

The deal will pay Adrianza $600,000 if he's in the big leagues or $300,000 if he spends the season in the minor leagues. The 27-year-old appeared in 40 games for the Giants in 2016, slashing .254/.299/.381 with a pair of homers and seven RBI in 63 at-bats.

Giants activated INF Ehire Adrianza from the 15-day disabled list.

Adrianza has been on the shelf since mid-April because of a fractured left foot. He was raking on his minor league rehab assignment, but the 26-year-old is a .214/.293/.311 career hitter in the majors.

The Giants are expected to activate Ehire Adrianza (foot) Tuesday against the Phillies.

Adrianza has absolutely slaughtered the ball during his rehab assignment, batting .346 with six homers and 14 RBI across 13 games for High-A San Jose and Triple-A Sacramento. He's been out since breaking his foot in mid-April. Adrianza's role is somewhat unclear now that the Giants have acquired utility infielder Eduardo Nunez from Minnesota. He'll likely back up Joe Panik at second base and Brandon Crawford at shortstop.

Ehire Adrianza (foot) has begun a rehab assignment for High-A San Jose.

Adrianza went 1-for-4 as the DH Wednesday night. He's scheduled to play in both games of Thursday's doubleheader, appearing at shortstop for the first five innings of game one before serving as the DH in the second game. Adrianza hasn't played in the big leagues since fracturing his left foot about two weeks into the season.

Ehire Adrianza said his fractured foot has improved quickly over the last week.

This comes only a few days after it was reported Adrianza's foot was healing slower than expected. Apparently that isn't the case. Adrianza has resumed throwing and hitting but he hasn't advanced to running yet. There's no timetable for his return.
