The Minnesota Twins placed catcher Mitch Garver on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a high left ankle sprain and reinstated infielder Miguel Sano.
Garver suffered the injury in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory against the Los Angeles Angels when Shohei Ohtani slid into his planted foot at the plate.
Garver, 28, is batting .329 with nine homers and 19 RBIs in 25 games this season.
Sano, 26, replaces Garver on the 25-man roster and could make his 2019 debut this week.
The 2017 All-Star has missed the first 41 games while recovering from a right heel laceration. He played 10 games in the minors on a rehab assignment, batting .316 with two homers and nine RBIs.
