The Minnesota Twins placed outfielder Rob Refsnyder on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right elbow impingement.

Refsnyder, 30, has played in 51 games for the Twins this season, hitting .245 with two home runs and 12 RBIs.

The Twins selected the contract of infielder Drew Maggi from Triple-A St. Paul to replace Refsnyder on the active roster.

Maggi, 32, has played more than 1,000 games over 11 seasons in the minors but has yet to make his major league debut.

Maggi is hitting .261 with 16 homers and 48 RBIs in 86 games this season at St. Paul.

Minnesota transferred left-hander Taylor Rogers (left middle finger sprain) to the 60-day injured list to clear room for Maggi on the 40-man roster.
