Here's your Monday morning Twins news:
Hudson goes on DL for a second time | StarTribune.com
Orlando Hudson is headed to the DL with an oblique muscle strain. His replacement is Jose Morales, who will fill the important role of making Gardy feel warm and fuzzy about having three catchers on the roster. With Drew Butera now playing every fifth day, it's nice to know that the Twins still have a catcher who never plays.
