Florimon scratched after tweaking wrist in BP

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shortstop Pedro Florimon was scratched from the starting lineup on Saturday night and is considered day to day with a left wrist injury.

Twins meneral manager Terry Ryan said that Florimon tweaked the wrist during batting practice and was pulled from the starting lineup as a precautionary measure. The injury mostly affects him when he's hitting right-handed, which he would have been doing against the Astros' starter on Saturday, lefty Erik Bedard.

However, Ryan said Florimon would be available to pinch-run, play defense or even hit left-handed. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Doug Bernier.
