Sierra to miss several months with torn biceps
The 40-year-old Sierra had an MRI test before Monday's game against Seattle, which revealed the damage. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday after hurting himself the day before while swinging at a pitch.
The Twins said Sierra will rehabilitate the injury without surgery and that he should be able to return this season. Signed as a pinch-hitter and backup outfielder, Sierra strained his right quadriceps in spring training and missed a month. He batted .188 in 16 at-bats with two RBI before getting hurt again.
