Andreoli was traded to Minnesota for Michael Reed, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Andreoli is with his fifth organization of the offseason after passing through Baltimore, Seattle, San Francisco and Texas. He'll likely end up adding depth at Triple-A for the Twins.
Andreoli cleared waivers Friday and was invited to spring training as a non-roster invitee, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Andreoli will remain with his fourth organization of the offseason after passing through Baltimore, Seattle and Texas. The 28-year-old didn't do much during his big-league debut in 2018, hitting .230/.284/.262 in 67 plate appearances, but he's posted above-average batting lines at the Triple-A level for four straight seasons. He has a chance to be a competent bench player should a roster spot open up.
Andreoli was designated for assignment by the Giants on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Andreoli lasted less than a week on the Giants' 40-man roster, having been claimed off waivers from Baltimore on Friday. He makes way for Jake Barrett, who was acquired in a trade from Arizona in a corresponding move. Andreoli has already spent time with four organizations this offseason (the Orioles, Mariners, Rangers and Giants) and will now hope to be claimed by a fifth team.
Andreoli was claimed by the Giants on Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Andreoli is now on his fourth team of the offseason, having ended last season with the Orioles and since passed through the Mariners and Rangers prior to Friday's move. The 28-year-old produced a solid .287/.397/401 line in 89 games for Triple-A Tacoma last season but hit just .230/.284/.262 in 67 plate appearances in his first taste of big-league action. Derek Law was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Andreoli was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday.
Andreoli was claimed off waivers by the Rangers in mid-January but will return to the waiver wire as the team needed room on the 40-man roster for the signing of reliever Shawn Kelley. Andreoli split 2018 -- his first season in the majors -- between Baltimore and Seattle, slashing .230/.284/.262 in 67 plate appearances.
