The Twins outrighted Minaya to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday after he cleared waivers, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Minnesota designated Minaya for assignment over the weekend after he posted a 4.26 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 6.1 innings out of the big-league bullpen. The 30-year-old right-hander will continue to work in a relief role as he moves down to St. Paul.
The Twins designated Minaya for assignment Saturday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Minaya's 4.26 ERA across 6.1 relief innings is respectable, considering his bullpen's overall struggles in 2021, but the Twins needed a roster spot to call up minor-league starter Griffin Jax. Having pitched fairly well in his four relief opportunities, Minaya may be claimed by and prove useful to another MLB squad.
Minaya's contract was selected by the Twins on Saturday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Minaya failed to break camp with the Twins this spring and posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 12.1 innings across seven relief appearances for Triple-A St. Paul to begin the year. He'll now return to the majors for the first time since 2019 and should mainly serve as a low-leverage bullpen option for Minnesota. Right-hander Cody Stashak was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul as part of a corresponding move.
The Twins reassigned Minaya to their minor-league camp Thursday.
Minaya served as a non-roster invitee for most of spring training but will now join the minor-league squad with a week remaining until Opening Day. The right-hander should begin the 2021 campaign with Triple-A St. Paul.
Minaya signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Thursday as a non-roster invitee, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Minaya was designated for assignment by Minnesota at the beginning of September, but he'll remain in the organization in 2021. The right-hander didn't appear in the majors last season, but he'll get to work with the major-league coaching staff during spring training.
Minaya cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to the Twins' alternate training site, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Minaya hasn't appeared in a big-league game this season. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for the Twins going forward but doesn't appear to be high on the team's depth chart.
Minaya was designated for assignment by the Twins on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Minaya spent just four days on the Twins' roster and did not get into a game. He owns a 3.51 ERA in 74.1 innings of relief over the last two seasons, so it's possible he could generate some interest on the waiver wire.
Minaya had his contract selected by the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
The 29-year-old joined the Twins on a minor-league deal over the winter, and he'll now get an opportunity at the major-league level. Minaya appeared in 22 games for the White Sox last season and had a 3.90 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 27:12 K:BB over 27.2 innings.
Minaya was added to Minnesota's 60-man player pool and will join the team's alternate training camp in St. Paul, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Minaya threw 27.2 innings for the White Sox last season, finishing with a solid 3.90 ERA. Neither his 21.4 percent strikeout rate not his 9.5 percent walk rate were particularly remarkable however. He'll add middle-relief depth for the Twins and isn't likely to be called up unless there are several openings in the bullpen.
Minaya signed a minor-league contract with Minnesota on Tuesday.
Minaya threw 27.2 innings for the White Sox last season, finishing with a solid 3.90 ERA. Neither his 21.4 percent strikeout rate not his 9.5 percent walk rate were particularly remarkable, meaning he's probably best suited for a middle-relief role if he wins a roster spot.
Minaya cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.
Minaya threw 27.2 innings for the White Sox this season, recording a 3.90 ERA. However, the ERA estimators suggested regression was coming, as his FIP comes in at 4.66 while his xFIP sits at 5.63. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for Chicago.
Minaya was designated for assignment Saturday.
This is the corresponding move for Dylan Covey coming off the injured list. Minaya has a 3.90 ERA in 27.2 innings, but his 4.65 FIP is a better gauge of how he has pitched this season.
Minaya allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout over two innings in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to the Nationals.
Minaya has quietly put together a nice season out of the White Sox's bullpen. His two innings Tuesday extended his scoreless streak to nine innings over six appearances, and the right-hander has a 1.17 ERA over 15.1 frames overall in 2019. None of his outings, however, have been in high-leverage spots. While he's not going to threaten Alex Colome for closing duties, Minaya became the temporary closer in 2017 (nine saves) after the White Sox traded David Robertson. If Chicago eventually deals Colome, Minaya is putting together a body of work that could thrust him into a more prominent role.
The White Sox selected Minaya's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.
Chicago will add Minaya and Caleb Frare to the bullpen to replace Carson Fulmer and Jose Ruiz, who were both optioned to Charlotte following Saturday's 15-2 loss to the Red Sox. Minaya logged 52 appearances out of the White Sox bullpen in 2018, posting a 3.28 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 58:29 K:BB in 46.2 innings.
Minaya cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Minaya had struggled so far this spring, allowing 11 runs in 4.2 innings. He finished 2018 with a 3.28 ERA in 46.2 innings, so he still could provide capable performances at some point this season.
Minaya allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out three in an inning of relief Monday against the Brewers.
Both runs Minaya allowed scampered home after wild pitches. It's been a troubling spring for the White Sox's returning bullpen members. Minaya's ERA rose to 21.21 after the outing. He joins Aaron Bummer (13.50), Jace Fry (14.73), Ian Hamilton (36.00) and Thyago Vieira (7.71) as members of the bullpen that finished the 2018 season in Chicago and are now scuffling in the Cactus League.
Minaya allowed a hit and a walk over 1.1 scoreless innings to record his first save of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Orioles.
Nate Jones and Jace Fry both pitched the night before, so manager Rick Renteria turned to Minaya instead to close out the game. He's at best third in the pecking order for ninth-inning duty, so don't expect the 27-year-old to get many more save opportunities over the final weeks of the season.
Minaya allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning and was tagged with a blown save in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rays.
Minaya was part of an eighth-inning crew that blew a 2-0 lead that illustrated the unsettled nature of the White Sox's back-end picture. After a shift-beating infield single off Jace Fry, Minaya was victimized by two stolen bases and a wild pitch that allowed the Rays to tie the game. Luis Avilan, another member of Chicago's committee of closers, prevented any further damage in the eighth inning, but ran into a spot of trouble of his own making in the ninth.
Minaya was one pitcher mentioned as part of a closer-by-committee approach after the White Sox traded Joakim Soria to Milwaukee on Thursday, Doug Padilla of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Minaya filled a similar role in 2017 when he picked up nine saves as a fill-in closer after the White Sox traded David Robertson to the Yankees. Manager Rick Renteria said he didn't plan on naming a closer and also mentioned Jace Fry as a possible member of the committee. Hours after Renteria mentioned Minaya, the reliever was dinged for a three-run home run in two-thirds of an inning, throwing just nine strikes in 23 pitches.
Minaya retired the only batter he faced to earn his second hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.
Minaya has slowly chipped away at an ERA that was 7.11 on June 15. Since then, he's allowed two earned runs over 11.2 innings (1.54 ERA) with six walks and 14 strikeouts. He served as the White Sox's closer for a period of time last year after David Robertson was dealt and could be in line for save opportunities later this season if the White Sox trade Joakim Soria. For that to happen, he'll need to manage the free passes more effectively -- he's walked 17 batters in 18 innings.
