Dozier isn't in the lineup Tuesday versus the Royals, Mike Swanson of the Royals' official site reports.
Dozier (back) is in the lineup at second base Sunday against the Tigers, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Dozier (back) entered Saturday's game in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement at second base and hit his 15th home run in his only at bat. However, manager Ron Gardenhire isn't convinced he's fully healthy. "He still hasn't had to dive for a baseball, hasn't had to run and slide. All he had to do was hit a home run [and he] made that look easy. But I'm still worried about him. If I put him out there tomorrow and he dives for a ball and has to come out, where am I now?" he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Dozier (back) is out of the lineup again Saturday against the Tigers.
Dozier (back) will get his first day off of the year Friday, Dustin Morse of the Twins' baseball communications department reports.
