With the Twins starting left-hander Andrew Albers on Wednesday night, Yost isn't in a hurry to get the left-handed-hitting Moustakas back in the lineup.
Yost said that Moustakas would come to Target Field for treatment during the game on Tuesday night and probably return to the team hotel to rest.
Moustakas, who has been recovering from a calf injury, was pulled for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning on Monday after getting his second RBI hit in the 11-1 romp over Tampa Bay.
"I got him out after the sixth inning yesterday and it was more to protect his leg. I'm glad I did now," Yost said.
