Glen Perkins suffers set-back in his come-back

New, comments

I don't even really blame him not wanting to come back to this team...

Ow.
Ow.

Glen Perkins, who's been on the disabled list for the past six weeks, was going to throw a bullpen session tomorrow but called it off due to lingering shoulder issues. He tried doing a long-toss last Thursday and it apparently just didn't feel good. "When I go to throw, I don’t want to say it feels like a knife-stabbing pain but it’s a pain in the front of my shoulder," Perkins told reporters.

Perk is going to take a week off from throwing and then try again next week. All okay and good, I guess. The Twins aren't going anywhere this season.

The slightly disconcerting part about all of this, however, is that Glen is reporting that a different part of his shoulder is now the part that is hurting (as opposed to the part that originally landed him on the DL).

That's so 2016 Twins...
