TORONTO, ON – The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have placed outfielder Rob Refsnyder on the 10-day Injured List with right elbow impingement.
Refsnyder has played in 51 games for the Twins this season, hitting .245 (34-for-139) with seven doubles, two home runs, 12 RBI, 21 runs scored, 17 walks and a .325 on-base percentage.
To replace Refsnyder on the 28-man roster, the Twins have selected the contract of infielder Drew Maggi (pronounced MAJ-ee) from Triple-A St. Paul. The 32-year-old has played in 86 games for the Saints this season, hitting .261 (74-for-284) with 12 doubles, two triples, 16 home runs, 48 RBI, 53 runs scored, 36 walks, a .364 on-base percentage and an .850 OPS. The 6-foot, 192-pound infielder has spent the last three years in the Twins’ organization after originally signing a minor league contract prior to the 2019 season. He will be in uniform for today’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, wearing number 89, and is looking to make his major league debut.
Additionally, to make room for Maggi on the 40-man roster, the Twins have transferred left-handed pitcher Taylor Rogers to the 60-day Injured List. Rogers, who was originally placed on the 10-day Injured List on July 27, has missed the club’s last 47 games with a left middle finger sprain.
