Bridwell agreed to a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday.
Bridwell made 12 starts for Triple-A Salt Lake in 2019, recording a 8.12 ERA, 1.95 WHIP and a 18.4 strikeout percentage. The 28-year-old's most productive season came in 2017 with the Angels, where he posted a 3.64 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 20 starts. Bridwell will look to make a positive first impression on the Minnesota coaching staff during camp, but he will likely return to the minors following spring training.
Bridwell agreed Tuesday with the Angels on a minor-league contract, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Bridwell will look to get his career back on track with the organization where he previously enjoyed his most success. During his age-25 campaign in 2017, Bridwell made 20 starts for the Halos, going 10-3 with a 3.64 and 1.20 WHIP over 121 innings. Since then, he's seen limited action in both the majors and minors while battling elbow problems and looked like a shell of himself this spring even though he received a clean bill of health. The Angels will presumably send him to Triple-A Salt Lake to see if there's anything still left in the tank.
The Athletics released Bridwell, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The right-hander never appeared for the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate at Las Vegas before receiving his walking papers. Since posting a 3.64 ERA over 121 frames with the Angels in 2017, Bridwell has dealt with a deluge of injuries, which limited him to just 34.2 low-quality innings between the majors and minors last season. He'll look to get his career back on track with a new organization.
Bridwell was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Bridwell didn't fare well in his first three games of camp, posting a 31.50 ERA with two strikeouts over 2.0 innings. He saw limited time in the majors a season ago with the Angels (one start) but is unlikely to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster after getting cut from big-league camp.
Bridwell allowed five runs on two hits and three walks while failing to record an out in Tuesday's spring game against the Angels.
Bridwell began his offseason being waived by the Angels and subsequently claimed by the A's, only to again be designated for assignment. The 27-year-old will likely need a strong rebound in spring training if he is to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster.
Bridwell went unclaimed off waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bridwell will stick in the organization and join the Athletics in spring training as a non-roster invitee after the team handed his 40-man spot to starting pitcher Marco Estrada. It's expected that Bridwell will be included in the Las Vegas rotation to begin the 2019 campaign.
Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Bridwell was claimed off waivers by the A's on Tuesday but ends up with a potentially short stay in Oakland. The team signed Marco Estrada to a one-year deal, prompting the move to clear space on the 40-man roster. Bridwell could remain with the Athletics, but he would first have to clear waivers.
Bridwell was claimed off waivers by the A's on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bridwell is set to join his third team this offseason. The 27-year-old was hampered by an elbow injury in 2018, making just five appearances for the Angels and struggling to a 17.55 ERA and 2.40 WHIP during those outings. Bridwell owns a 4.16 ERA across 21 career big-league starts, so he could compete for a back-end rotation spot with the A's in spring training.
Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday to make room for new acquisition John Curtiss, who was picked up in a trade from the Twins.
Bridwell had already been DFA'd once by the Angels this offseason back in November. That time, he was claimed by the Yankees, only to be DFA'd again less than a month later and reacquired by his old team. It remains to be seen whether he'll land with another team this time around.
Bridwell was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reports.
Bridwell returns to the Angels' organization after being designated for assignment by the Yankees earlier this week. The 27-year-old spent the past two years with Los Angeles, pitching in 26 big-league games, though he was hampered by injuries throughout the 2018 season. He will come into spring training fully operational and could contend for a starting spot in the Angels' rotation.
Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Monday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Bridwell's tenure on the Yankees' 40-man roster was short-lived, as he'd only been claimed off waivers in late November. He'll make way on the roster for J.A. Happ, whose contract was finalized Monday.

An elbow injury limited Bridwell to just 34.2 innings in 2018. The right-hander failed to impress when healthy, posting an 8.68 ERA across six starts (28 innings) with Triple-A Salt Lake while struggling to a 17.55 ERA across five appearances (6.2 innings) for the big club. He did post a 3.64 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 121 innings (20 starts) with the Angels in 2017. Ronald Torreyes was designated for assignment in order to free up a roster spot for Bridwell.

Bridwell (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Bridwell is back with the Angels for the final stretch of the season after fully recovering from elbow surgery he underwent in July. The right-hander, who was rocked for six runs on seven hits in his lone appearance for the big club this season, will be immediately available out of the bullpen for Los Angeles.
Bridwell (elbow) will likely be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake before the regular season ends, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Bridwell underwent surgery in July to remove bone spurs in his pitching elbow, and although it was thought that his season was over, manager Mike Scioscia stated there's a good chance he'll pitch in the big leagues in 2018. Bridwell appeared just once for the Angels this season, and he was rocked for six runs on seven hits across 1.2 innings in a spot start.
Bridwell recently underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow and received a stem-cell injection to aid his healing, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
The Angels didn't provide a recovery timetable for the right-hander, but with Triple-A Salt Lake's season coming to an end Sept. 3, it's quite likely Bridwell won't pitch again in 2018. Bridwell has been sidelined since early June after experiencing a setback with the elbow, which previously presented problems for the 27-year-old back in April.
Bridwell (elbow) gave up one run on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts in three innings for Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
He came off the disabled list to make this start after missing a little over a month with an elbow injury. Bridwell will provide organizational rotation depth and could be an option for a spot start at any point going forward. He has a 7.82 ERA and 2.05 WHIP, but he's made just three starts this season for the Bees.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday that Bridwell (elbow) is nearing a return to game action for Triple-A Salt Lake, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Bridwell hasn't pitched for the affiliate since April 16 while batting right elbow inflammation. The 26-year-old previously made a spot start for the big club earlier this season, but there aren't expected to be any openings in the Angels' rotation by the time Bridwell is deemed ready pitch again, as Nick Tropeano (shoulder) should be back from the 10-day disabled list by the weekend.
Bridwell was diagnosed with elbow inflammation Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
An MRI revealed that Bridwell didn't have any structural damage in his elbow. He'll resume throwing once his bout of inflammation subsides, at which point a timeframe for his eventual activation from the DL should begin to take shape.
Bridwell is dealing with an elbow injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bridwell was placed on the disabled list Sunday, though the reason was not initially known. The right-hander is getting his elbow examined in Los Angeles, so the severity of his injury should become clearer relatively soon.
