Dobnak (finger) was placed on the 60-day injured list Monday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Dobnak has been shut down from throwing due to continued discomfort in his right middle finger, MLB.com reports. "I think we're resetting right now in a way and allowing his finger to rest," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said.
Dobnak struggled with a finger injury (a full tear of the A4 pulley in his right middle finger) for most of last season, so it's a real concern that he's having the same issue as spring training begins. He's likely out indefinitely.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Likely out for season
Dobnak (finger) will likely miss the remainder of the season, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Dobnak was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, and he was diagnosed with a full tear of the A4 pulley in his right middle finger. The right-hander dealt with a similar injury earlier in the season and is unlikely to return to the mound in 2021.

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Out with finger injury
Dobnak will not make his scheduled start Thursday and will be placed on the 10-day injured list with a right middle finger strain, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
It sounds like the same finger injury that sidelined Dobnak much of the season, and it could prevent him from taking the mound again this year. Andrew Albers will be called up from Triple-A, but it's not clear if he'll start Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Randy Dobnak: Starting Thursday
Dobnak is listed as the Twins' scheduled starter for Thursday's game in Cleveland.
Dobnak returned from the 60-day injured list last week and immediately reclaimed a spot in the Minnesota rotation, after previously swinging between a starting and long-relief role for the big club before being shut down in late June with a right middle finger strain. While he gave the Twins seven innings Sept. 3 against an excellent Rays squad, he was pummeled for five runs and six hits between the second and third innings alone. The strong finish to the start was enough for Dobnak to earn a second turn, and he'll likely have some staying power in the rotation for the rest of the season now that the 61-77 Twins are in full-on evaluation mode with younger pitchers on the roster....

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Crushed in return
Dobnak (1-7) allowed five runs on six hits over seven innings Friday, striking out two without walking a batter and taking a loss against the Rays.
It was a very up-and-down outing for Dobnak, who made his first start since June 19 after missing time with a finger injury. The Rays tallied all five runs and six hits during the second and third innings but the 26-year-old righty retired the last 15 batters he faced. He actually lowered his ERA slightly to 7.64 alongside a 27:12 K:BB through 50.2 innings. Dobnak is lined up to take the mound in Cleveland next week.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Rejoining rotation Friday
Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Dobnak (finger) will be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Dobnak initially looked on track to start Wednesday's home game versus the Cubs, but the Twins opted to give him a couple extra days to rest up after he completed the final start of his minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul over the weekend. He covered 4.2 innings and tossed 78 pitches in that outing, so he shouldn't face any significant restrictions with his workload as he makes his first start for the Twins since June 19. Dobnak has been on the shelf for over two months with a strained middle finger on his pitching hand.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Randy Dobnak: Could be activated soon

Dobnak made the second start of his rehab assignment Thursday for Triple-A St. Paul, tossing 4.2 innings of one-run ball while striking out two.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Randy Dobnak: Preparing for second rehab outing
Dobnak (finger) will make the second start of his rehab assignment Thursday for Triple-A St. Paul, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Dobnak hadn't seen any game action in more than two months due to a strained right middle finger before the Twins gave him the green light to begin a rehab assignment last weekend. While working against overmatched competition at Low-A Fort Myers, Dobnak struck out five over three perfect frames. He'll get a tougher test Thursday while presumably pushing up his pitch count in anticipation of slotting into the Minnesota rotation when he returns from the 60-day injured list. Depending on how he fares and how deep he goes into Thursday's game, Dobnak could be activated as soon as Aug. 31, though it's more likely Minnesota waits until after rosters expand Sept. 1 before bringing him back....

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Throws bullpen session
Dobnak (finger) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Twins' Randy Dobnak: Setback in recovery
Dobnak (finger) had a recent setback in his rehab as he continued to feel discomfort while attempting to throw, MLB.com reports.
Dobnak isn't expected to begin throwing again in the near future, so there's no clear timetable for his return. The right-hander's absence is likely to extend into August. It's bad timing as Minnesota's depth issues in the rotation would otherwise likely give him a regular spot as a starter.... See More ... See Less
