MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota outfielder Jason Kubel has had a setback in his recovery from the sprained left foot that has kept him out for the last month.

Twins general manager Bill Smith said Thursday that Kubel felt discomfort in his foot after making a play in the outfield for Class A Fort Myers and was removed from the game as a precaution.

Kubel started his rehabilitation assignment this week.

Smith said right-hander Kevin Slowey threw 50 pitches for Fort Myers on Thursday with no problems. He is on a rehab assignment for a strained abdominal muscle.

Smith said first baseman Justin Morneau's surgery Wednesday afternoon to remove a piece of herniated disk in his neck went as planned.
