MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins third baseman Royce Lewis was removed from Tuesday night’s game against Detroit with tightness in his left groin.

Lewis was replaced in the field for the top of the sixth inning. He had a two-run, two-out double in the third off Tigers ace Tarik Skubal. The Twins announced Lewis’ status as day to day.

The budding star missed 58 games earlier this season with a partially torn quadriceps in his right leg. He previously underwent two reconstructive knee surgeries for torn ACLs in the same leg that waylaid the beginning of his career.

The first overall pick in the 2017 draft has 31 homers and 80 RBIs in 100 major league games, including the postseason.
