MINNEAPOLIS: Shin-Soo Choo was sent back to Cleveland after reinjuring his left oblique and won't play again this season.
""It's the same injury, but he's done for the season,'' manager Manny Acta said.
After being on the disabled list since Aug. 28, Choo was activated for Thursday night's game against the Rangers in Texas and reinjured the oblique on his first swing.
Josh Tomlin, who has been sidelined with a sore right elbow, will throw his second bullpen on Saturday. If there are no setbacks, he will pitch a simulated game early next week.
""If he feels good, why shouldn't he come back this season,'' Acta said. ""This was not a serious injury.''
