Minnesota Twins' Starter Kevin Slowey Lost for Season
The Minnesota Twins—already suffering through a second-half swoon—saw their postseason pursuits take another hit on Monday.
Prior to Monday’s game against the division-rival Chicago White Sox it was announced that right-handed starter Kevin Slowey will miss the rest of the season.
Slowey will undergo surgery to fix a bone chip in his right wrist. The operation will require two to four months of rehab and recovery.
Slowey initially aggravated the injury when he was hit by a line drive during a start last September.
He pitched through the pain until July 3, when he left a game after three innings. The next day he went on the disabled list and hasn’t pitched since.
