  • Descalso opted out of his Triple-A St. Paul contract Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Any hopes of being called up by the Twins this season were squashed by a .093 batting average and .444 OPS in 75 at-bats with St. Paul since being signed May 13. Descalso, now 34 years old, hasn't been remotely impactful at the major-league level since 2018, so it's possible this stint with the Twins' organization was his last with an MLB club.

  • Descalso signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Thursday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Descalso spent the last two seasons with the Cubs but missed the 2020 campaign due to a left ankle sprain. The 34-year-old has been assigned to Triple-A St. Paul but could join the Twins as a utility option at some point in 2021.

  • Descalso's (ankle) $3.5 million team option was declined by the Cubs on Saturday. Descalso missed most of the 2020 season with a left ankle sprain, and the 34-year-old failed to play a significant role with the Cubs during his two years in Chicago. As a result, he'll receive a $1 million buyout and become a free agent heading into the offseason.

  • The Cubs placed Descalso on the 45-day injured list Wednesday with a left ankle sprain, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports. No reports surfaced in summer camp suggesting that Descalso was tending to a major injury, but the utility man will now be on the shelf for at least the next month and a half while he recovers from the ankle sprain. His absence likely paved the way for both Jason Kipnis and Nico Hoerner to crack the Opening Day roster.

  • Descalso will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season and will head to Wrigley Field for summer camp. Descalso had a season to forget in 2019, posting a .173/.271/.250 slash line in 82 games, but the Cubs like his versatility enough to keep him around. The 33-year-old isn't likely to have a significant role, however, with Jason Kipnis added to the mix in the offseason and Nico Hoerner also a member of the infield group training at Wrigley Field. There's also David Bote around to block Descalso for playing time at both second and third.
