C.J. Cron (thumb) placed on 10-day IL

The Twins have placed C.J. Cron back on the injured list with the thumb injury that landed him there before the All-Star Break.

Fantasy Impact

The move comes as a bit of a surprise as there weren't any indications that he was heading back to the IL. Previously, inflammation was the issue so owners will have to hope some additional rest will get him back off the IL shortly once eligible. With news coming ahead of the first games of the week, owners will want to adjust accordingly.
