Pelfrey has been on the disabled list since May 1 with a strained left groin and initially complained of shoulder discomfort during his rehab appearances. He had Tommy John surgery in May 2012.

The Twins signed the 6-foot-7 righty to a two-year, $11 million contract before this season.

He is 0-3 with a 7.99 ERA in five starts this year.
