The Minnesota Twins recalled left-hander Devin Smeltzer and outfielder Jake Cave from Triple-A Rochester ahead of Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers. To make room on the roster, the Twins optioned right-hander Kohl Stewart back to Rochester and placed outfielder LaMonte Wade Jr. on the 10-day injured list with a dislocated right thumb.

Wade had been called up on Saturday but injured the thumb in a collision with the centerfield wall in a 7-4 win over the Rangers. It's Cave's third stint with the Twins this season. He has batted just .176 in 28 games during his call-ups, but has hit .327 through 41 games at Rochester.

Smeltzer has made two starts for the Twins this season, posting a 3.65 ERA over 12 1/3 innings. He's expected to provide long relief Sunday for starter Kyle Gibson, who is starting on short rest and expected to only pitch two innings. Stewart was called up Friday and played vs. the Rangers that night, retiring all four batters he faced.
