Dobnak is slated to start Friday's game against Cleveland.

Michael Pineda (forearm) isn't on track to return from the 10-day injured list until next week at the earliest, so Dobnak will be awarded a second straight turn through the rotation in Pineda's stead. After a string of poor outings as a spot starter and long reliever, Dobnak righted the ship in his last outing Saturday at Texas, working five innings while surrendering two runs.
