Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said on 1500 ESPN this afternoon that 2B Orlando Hudson's wrist is still too sore to swing a bat.

Hudson missed the entire four-game series in Seattle this week, and his status for this weekend's games against Oakland remains uncertain. The Twins originally hoped Hudson would be able to return within a few days after he rejoined the team on Tuesday.

Gardenhire did say Hudson was available and ready to pinch run last night if needed.

Matt Tolbert started at second base and batted second for the Twins last night.

Hudson injured the wrist last Sunday in a collision with Denard Span. A CT scan showed no new damage, only previous damage from when he broke the wrist in 2008.
