The Minnesota Twins placed veteran left-hander Rich Hill on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to shoulder fatigue. The move is retroactive to July 31.

Hill, 40, signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Twins in December.

He earned the victory in his Minnesota debut against the St. Louis Cardinals last Wednesday, allowing two hits in five shutout innings. He walked one and struck out two in the 3-0 win.

Hill is 66-42 with a 3.80 ERA in 285 career games (157 starts) with the Chicago Cubs (2005-08), Baltimore Orioles (2009), Boston Red Sox (2010-12, 2015), Cleveland Indians (2013), Los Angeles Angels (2014), New York Yankees (2014), Oakland A's (2016), Los Angeles Dodgers (2016-19) and Twins.

The Twins did not immediately announce a corresponding roster move. Hill is the team's third starting pitcher to land on the IL, along with right-handers Jake Odorizzi (back) and Homer Bailey (biceps).
