Dobnak made 10 starts for the Twins, going 6-4 with a 4.05 ERA (46.2 IP, 21 ER), 13 walks, 27 strikeouts and a 1.35 WHIP. In his last four starts, Dobnak went 1-3 with an 8.27 ERA (16.1 IP, 15 ER), six walks and 11 strikeouts.

At one point, Dobnak was 5-1 with an ERA of 1.78, a big reason why the Twins will soon clinch a playoff berth.

Dobnak hopes to be on the Twins’ initial playoff roster, one of a few decisions that will challenge manager Rocco Baldelli and his staff.
