The Minnesota Twins placed left-hander Danny Coulombe on the 15-day injured list with a left hip impingement and selected the contract of right-hander Yennier Cano from Triple-A St. Paul.

Coulombe, 32, had a 0.75 ERA for the Twins in nine relief outings. He left Tuesday’s game against the Houston Astros with the injury.

In eight major league seasons, Coulombe is 9-6 with a 3.88 ERA in 193 appearances (one start) for the Los Angeles Dodgers (2014-15), Oakland Athletics (2015-18) and Twins (2020-22).

Cano, 28, will look to make his first major league appearance after going 1-0 and not being scored upon in nine outings (12 innings) with St. Paul this season. He has been in the Twins’ organization since 2019.
