Twins' Ben Paulsen: Signs minor league contract with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen signed a minor league contract with Minnesota that includes an invite to spring training.

Paulsen hit just .217/.258/.304 for the Rockies last season. He spent most of his time at Triple-A Albuquerque where he hit .278 with a .765 OPS. The Twins have a logjam at first base and DH, so it's hard to see Paulsen adding anything other than minor league depth.

Rockies' Ben Paulsen: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

The Rockies outrighted both Paulsen and Rafael Ynoa on Thursday just two days after designating them for assignment. Paulsen remains in the Rockies' organization, but he's no longer on the 40-man roster and is unlikely to be back up with the big league club this season. He had an opportunity to lock in an everyday role with the Rockies this season but he notched a .217/.258/.304 slash line that forced manager Walt Weiss to look in a different direction at first base.

Rockies' Ben Paulsen: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paulsen was designated for assignment on Tuesday, the Denver Post's Nick Kosmider reports.

Paulsen was given a chance to stake his claim as the team's first baseman of the future this year, but that campaign never really took off, as he hit .217/.258/.304 before being demoted to Triple-A in mid-May. He could continue to serve as organizational depth, but the team seems confident moving in a different direction long term. Gerardo Parra, Stephen Cardullo, Mark Reynolds and Jordan Patterson will occupy a timeshare at first base over the final month of the season.

Rockies' Ben Paulsen: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paulsen was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post reports.

Stephen Cardullo was brought up in a corresponding move, and while Cardullo has played mostly in the outfield corners this year with Albuquerque, he could see some chances at first base along with Daniel Descalso. Paulsen flopped in his audition in place of Mark Reynolds (hand), going 3-for-26 with nine strikeouts, but he figures to be back in early September.

Rockies' Ben Paulsen: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post reports.

Daniel Descalso will get the nod to start at first as Colorado gives Paulsen the night off. Paulsen has yet to find his rhythm at the plate since joining the Rockies on Aug. 12, as he's gone just 1-for-12 since.
