Twins' Aaron Whitefield: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Twins outrighted Whitefield off the 40-man roster Monday and assigned him to their alternate training site, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
A surprise addition to the Twins' season-opening 30-man active roster, Whitefield appeared in three games before he was optioned last week. The Twins quietly designated him for assignment days later, and the 23-year-old will now stick in the organization after he went unclaimed off waivers.

Whitefield was added to the Twins' 60-man player pool Friday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old hit a poor .220/.279/.328 in 81 games for High-A Fort Myers last season and a considerably worse .137/.174/.176 in 31 games for Double-A Pensacola, though he did at least steal a combined 30 bases....
