Bit of mild news from Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

Minnesota third baseman Matt Tolbert is going on the disabled list after pulling his oblique last night. Brian Buscher will replace him on the Twins roster.

Tolbert and Buscher are pretty similar players: Corner outfield types who haven’t hit much in the big leagues, though Tolbert was a nice hitter the times I saw him in Triple-A. Gardenhire announced that Brendan Harris — who tripled and made a terrific defensive play after replacing Tolbert last night — will start in Tolbert’s place at third base.
