DETROIT, MI – The Minnesota Twins announced that they have returned left-handed pitcher Caleb Thielbar from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 15-day Injured List.

Thielbar, who began the season on the IL, has missed the Twins’ first 13 games with a left hamstring strain. The lefty made two appearances for the Saints, allowing one run on two hits in 3.0 innings pitched, with one walk and five strikeouts during his rehab assignment.

To make room for Thielbar on the 26-man roster, the Twins have optioned right-handed pitcher Jorge Alcala to St. Paul. Alcala has made six appearances for the Twins, going 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA (8.1 IP), three hits allowed, three walks and nine strikeouts.
