Wisler was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
The 27-year-old recorded a 5.61 ERA with a 63:16 K:BB in 51.1 innings pitched last season between the Padres and Mariners, but was designated for assignment by the Mariners as they clear roster space. Wisler will provide some versatility to the Twins' pitching staff, as he has experience as a starter and reliever in the majors.
Wisler (1-2) was charged with the loss in an extra-innings defeat at the hands of the Astros on Thursday, allowing a game-winning two-run home run and a walk while also recording a strikeout over one-third of an inning.
Tasked with preserving a 9-9 tie upon entering in the bottom of the 13th inning, Wisler promptly issued a leadoff walk to Jake Marisnick before getting a swinging strikeout of Jose Altuve. However, Michael Brantley subsequently squared up on Wisler's first offering, a 92 mph fastball, and sent it 409 feet to right field to end the marathon. September hasn't been kind to Wisler thus far, as he's allowed four earned runs over 1.2 innings across a pair of appearances, despite Brantley's homer qualifying as the only hit the right-handed reliever has allowed.
Wisler (1-1) was credited with his fourth hold but also charged with a loss against the Cubs on Monday, allowing two earned runs on two walks while also recording three strikeouts across 1.1 innings.
Wisler managed the rather unlikely feat of surrendering a pair of runs while not allowing any hits, although both crossed the plate after he'd left the game. Wisler has been charged with multiple earned runs in two of his last five appearances overall, but he's been reliable otherwise in the second half. The right-hander has four holds and a win since the All-Star break while also generating a respectable 3.93 ERA and .225 BAA across 18.1 innings.

Wisler did allow an inherited runner to score, which tied the game, but the right-hander became the pitcher of record when the Mariners rallied for three runs in the bottom half of the sixth inning.

Wisler served as the opener in a win over the Rays on Tuesday, firing a scoreless first inning during which he allowed a hit and issued a walk.

Wisler will serve as the opener for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Wisler did his job well, needing only 23 pitches to navigate the two-inning appearance. In nine appearances (four as an opener) with the Mariners, Wisler has a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP across 10.1 innings. The opener role will continue to prevent him from gathering decisions.

Wisler now has three straight scoreless appearances, with two of those coming in the role of opener. The 26-year-old's modest stretch of success comes in the wake of Wisler giving up an earned run in each of his first three appearances with the Mariners after being acquired in a trade with the Padres in late June. Wisler could certainly continue seeing opener opportunities during the remainder of the season, given his ability to work multiple innings.
Wisler pitched one inning, allowing one hit and striking out two in a 6-2 loss to the Angels on Saturday.
It's his first scoreless appearance in a Mariners uniform, and it's also the first time he's been deployed in the opener role this year. The 26-year-old reliever owns a 5.45 ERA and 40:10 K:BB in 33 innings between the Mariners and Padres this season. While it's a small sample size, the success as an opener Saturday could lead to Wisler being used in that role more frequently going forward, which would limit his ability to factor into decisions.
Wisler will serve as the Mariners' opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Angels, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
He'll become the seventh different Seattle pitcher to serve as an opener this season and will likely cover no more than an inning or two before giving way to bulk reliever Wade LeBlanc.

He's given up a run in each of his three appearances, all of which consisted of one inning.
