The Minnesota Twins placed catcher Ryan Jeffers on the 10-day injured list with a right thumb contusion on Friday.

In a corresponding move, catcher Caleb Hamilton was selected from Triple-A St. Paul just before Minnesota’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

In 60 games this season, Jeffers is hitting .214 with seven home runs and 25 RBIs. He has spent his entire career with the Twins, hitting .212 with 24 home runs and 67 RBIs across three seasons.

Hamilton is batting .252 with 10 home runs and 35 RBIs in 49 games with St. Paul. The 27-year-old has been in Minnesota’s minor league system for six seasons and has yet to appear in a major league game.
