MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Twins are without rookie slugger Miguel Sano and closer Glen Perkins for the game against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

Sano is dealing with a hamstring injury that doesn't allow him to run. Perkins' availability is more of a concern as he's been dealing with back spasms for the second time in a week. Perkins earned his 32nd save in a one-inning performance on Tuesday, but got up Wednesday morning with more trouble with his back.

Perkins, who is second in the American League in saves, won't accompany the team on the road trip to Houston starting Friday.
