Kepler to miss time with minor back injury


Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on Twitter today that outfielder Max Kepler will be missing a few days of game action. It's reported that Kepler has a minor upper back injury that is the cause for being sidelined. It doesn't seem to be a major issue and he's expected to be back in action within a few days.

Kepler battled a shoulder issue for much of September last season, but it does not seem to be related to the current minor injury.
