Cuddyer out again with neck strain
DETROIT -- Michael Cuddyer, who strained his neck during early batting practice on Friday, missed his fourth straight game, as he was out of the starting lineup against the Tigers on Monday.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he hopes Cuddyer can make his return during the three-game series in Detroit, but he just wasn't healthy enough to play Monday.

"Cuddy is not quite ready today," Gardenhire said. "He still feels it in his neck. He's going to do a little bit. But he's not going to play."

Cuddyer, who is one of only a few Twins regulars to not see time on the disabled list this year, is hitting .295 with 18 homers and 61 RBIs this season.
