The Minnesota Twins placed right-hander Sonny Gray on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a low-grade right hamstring strain.

Gray exited Saturday’s game against the host Boston Red Sox after appearing to slip during a pitch to Bobby Dalbec in the second inning. Dalbec popped up the pitch, and Gray grabbed his right hamstring area.

Gray took the loss after allowing one hit — a two-run homer by Alex Verdugo — in 1 2/3 innings.

Acquired in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds on March 13, Gray owns a 0-1 record with a 5.68 ERA in two games this season.

A two-time All-Star, Gray is 82-73 with a 3.62 ERA in 225 games (216 starts) with the Oakland Athletics (2013-17), New York Yankees (2017-18), Reds (2018-21) and Twins.

Also on Sunday, the Twins returned right-hander Cody Stashak from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 10-day injured list. He missed the Twins’ first eight games with right biceps tendinitis.

Stashak, 27, owns a 1-1 record with a 4.20 ERA in 44 career appearances (one start) with the Twins.
