The Minnesota Twins placed right-hander Randy Dobnak on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a middle finger strain on his pitching hand and recalled righty Griffin Jax from Triple-A Saint Paul.

Dobnak’s move to the IL was retroactive to Monday.

Dobnak, 26, has split time this year between the Twins’ rotation and bullpen. In 13 games (five starts), he has racked up a 1-6 record with one save, owns a 7.83 ERA and struck out 25 batters over 43 2/3 innings.

In three major league seasons, all with Minnesota, Dobnak is 9-11 with a 4.85 ERA in 32 appearances (20 starts).

Jax returns to the big leagues after making his MLB debut on June 8. In his first stint with the Twins, he pitched 8 1/3 innings of relief over three games, striking out nine but allowing four home runs on his way to an 8.64 ERA.
