The Minnesota Twins seemingly can't catch a break on the injury front. Star centerfielder Byron Buxton has been out since early May and recently hit a snag in his rehab. Now Josh Donaldson may join him on the injured list.

Minnesota's third baseman left Wednesday's game early with an injury he's been plagued by before.

Twins News: Josh Donaldson Injury

Donaldson was removed as a precaution, but it's hard not to be concerned. The third baseman struggled with calf injuries last season and it appears those issues haven't gone away.

Donaldson has racked up 10 home runs, 27 RBI and 11 doubles this season while slashing .241/.338/.455. If he is forced to miss time, the Twins will be without some major power, and they're not in a position to lose any at the moment with several players on the injured list.

Minnesota will eagerly await an update on Thuesday regarding Donaldson's calf.
