CLEVELAND (AP) The Minnesota Twins placed center fielder Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left shoulder.

Santana was injured when he collided with left fielder Robbie Grossman in the first inning Sunday in Toronto. He left the game the following inning and was examined Monday in Minneapolis.

Santana, a switch-hitter, is batting .240 with two homers, 14 RBIs and 12 stolen bases for Minnesota, which has lost 10 straight games.

Logan Schafer was called up from Triple-A Rochester and is starting in center field Monday against Cleveland.
