Rohlfing signed a minor league contract with the Twins on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The well-traveled catcher spent the past four seasons at the Triple-A level, but Rohlfing hasn't been able to crack the major league roster due to typically poor batting lines and strikeout rates north of 20 percent. Until he can solve these issues, he'll likely continue to dwell in the minors as an organizational depth piece.
The Mets have acquired catcher Dan Rohlfing from the Twins for cash considerations, according to ESPN.com. Rohlfing, who was on the Triple-A disabled list with a sprained right ankle, will serve as depth for New York with Travis d'Arnaud going on the DL for at least a month and Anthony Recker dealing with a bone spur in his elbow. Rohlfing hit .205 with two home runs and 23 RBI in 2014 for Triple-A Rochester.
The Twins announced Monday they reassigned Dan Rohlfing,Brandon Boggs, Jeff Clement and Ray Olmedo to minor-league camp.
