MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins first baseman Justin Morneau was held out of the lineup on Friday against the Brewers with a sore left forearm. He is listed as day to day.

Morneau hurt his forearm while swinging the bat, but it's not considred a serious injury, according to Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

"He's got a little soreness in his left forearm, so rather than him come out and take some swings and see how it was, I said, 'Let's back off and let's let it get well,'" Gardenhire said. "He was sore after the game [on Thursday]. He came in [Friday] and said he felt better, but he wanted to go test it and I said, let's take a day.

"We'll see if we can get him back out there [on Saturday]. It's not a big deal. It doesn't sound like it. But definitely something that was bothering him during the game swinging."

Morneau, who missed 15 games in early May with a sore left wrist, is batting .241 with 10 homers and 33 RBIs in 41 games.
