MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Minnesota Twins second baseman Jay Canizaro injured his left leg during a collision while trying to turn a double play Wednesday night and was carried off the field.

Canizaro sustained a lower leg contusion. He was listed as day-to-day.

The injury occurred in the second inning when Tony Graffanino of the Chicago White Sox collided with Canizaro.

Canizaro has been one of the bright spots for the Twins since he was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on May 4. He was hitting .296 with five home runs and 23 RBIs.
