OAKLAND, Calif. -- Minnesota Twins third baseman Joe Crede is out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Athletics because of an injured right shoulder.

Manager Ron Gardenhire says Crede will see Dr. Lewis Yocum on Thursday morning in Southern California before the team starts a series against the Los Angeles Angels. Gardenhire says the team won't know more about the injury until then.

Crede had two doubles for Minnesota on Tuesday night. He had missed the previous two games because of the injury. Crede first hurt the shoulder making a diving catch Friday at Texas. He started Saturday's game before leaving when he felt tingling in his right hand.
