Two days after injuring his left wrist in a violent collision, Orlando Hudson joined the Minnesota Twins in Seattle today, but he isn't in the lineup for tonight's game against the Mariners.

According to the Pioneer Press, Nick Punto will start at second base, with Michael Cuddyer -- who took Hudson's spot on Monday -- returning to his usual place in right field.

Update: Per the Star Tribune, when asked when he will be ready to play, Hudson said, ""I don't know. It's in the Lord's hands. It should be alright in a few days, I hope."

Twins general manager Bill Smith told on Monday he hoped Hudson would return to the lineup in two or three days.

As expected, newly recalled infielder Matt Tolbert also has arrived and presumably is available for reserve duty tonight.
