Top Twins News

  • Twins' Ronald Torreyes: Signs with Minnesota

    Torreyes inked a one-year, $800,000 major-league deal with the Twins on Thursday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Torreyes was traded from the Yankees to the Cubs in late November and failed to have his contract tendered by Chicago for this upcoming season. The 26-year-old did well to secure a big-league contract and will serve as added depth all around the infield for the Twins during the 2019 campaign. Across 41 games with the Yankees last year, he slashed .280/.294/.370 with seven RBI and eight extra-base hits.

  • Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Joins Minnesota on one-year deal

    Schoop signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Twins on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Schoop will move west to Minnesota after being non-tendered by the Brewers earlier in the offseason. The 27-year-old struggled between Milwaukee and Baltimore in 2018, hitting just .233/.266/.416 across a combined 131 games at both stops. That said, he owns a career .258 average and has topped 20 homers in each of the past three seasons, so he could make for a sneaky late-round target in fantasy drafts given his open path to playing time in Minnesota.

  • Twins' C.J. Cron: Avoids arbitration with Twins

    Cron agreed to a one-year, $4.8 million contract with Minnesota on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    Cron was scooped up off waivers by the Twins after being designated for assignment by the Rays. He should add much-needed power to Minnesota's lineup in 2019 after launching 30 homers a year ago.

  • Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Avoids arbitration

    Adrianza (shoulder) signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Twins on Thursday, avoiding arbitration.

    Adrianza appeared in 114 games for the Twins in 2018, slashing .251/.301/.379 with six homers and five stolen bases. He underwent shoulder surgery in October, though he's expected to be back to full health before the start of the season. Adrianza looks to be in line to open the 2019 campaign as the Twins' utility man.

  • Twins' C.J. Cron: Claimed by Twins

    Cron was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Monday.

    Cron was scooped up by the Twins after being designated for assignment by Tampa Bay last week. The 28-year-old, who hit .253/.323/.493 with 30 homers across 140 games in 2018, will likely slide in as Minnesota's primary first baseman following the retirement of Joe Mauer.

  • Twins' Brian Schales: Dealt to Minnesota

    Schales was traded from the Marlins to the Twins on Tuesday in exchange for Nick Anderson, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Schales played at Double-A Jacksonville throughout the 2018 season, hitting .258 with 10 homers and 49 RBI across 127 games. He appears primed to begin the 2019 campaign with Triple-A Rochester.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Promoted to 40-man roster

    Arraez was added to the 40-man roster by Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Arraez put together a solid 2018 season at the dish coming off a torn ACL, ending the year at Double-A Pensacola sporting a .298 batting average over 48 games. He was shifted to the 40-man roster for protection from the upcoming Rule 5 draft.

  • Twins' LaMonte Wade: Moved onto 40-man roster

    Wade was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of Baseball Prospectus reports.

    The Twins added the outfielder to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Wade put up solid numbers at Double-A over the past two years, but he was a bit older than the competition at that level. He also scuffled a bit upon a promotion to Triple-A, hitting .229 with four home runs and 21 RBI in 352 plate appearances. He has excellent contact rates throughout his professional career, however, and his walk rate sat above 10 percent at most stops in the minors. If the 24-year-old can hit a bit better at the start of the season, he could find his way to Target Field, though his lack of a truly standout tool limits his upside.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Gordon was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of Baseball Prospectus reports.

    This move protects the infielder from being taken by another team in the Rule 5 draft. Gordon was the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft, and he emerged as one of the Twins' top prospects in recent years. However, he struggled mightily in his first taste of Triple-A last season, slashing a mere .212/.262/.283 with two homers, 40 runs scored and 13 stolen bases across 490 plate appearances. The 23-year-old doesn't pose as a future superstar, but his decent speed, solid contact ability and proximity to the majors have him at least on the redraft radar for 2019.

  • Twins' Wynston Sawyer: Re-ups with Minnesota

    Sawyer inked a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Sawyer will continue to serve as organizational catching depth for Minnesota heading into the 2019 season. The 27-year-old spent most of last season with Triple-A Rochester but saw action in only 23 games, hitting .318/.446/.394 with one home run and 11 RBI.

  • Twins' Ryne Harper: Returns to Twins

    Harper agreed to a minor-league deal with Minnesota on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Harper spent the 2018 season in the Twins' organization, splitting time between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. He logged a cumulative 3.60 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with an 86:10 K:BB across 65 innings of relief, though his numbers took a decent-sized dip during his outings with Triple-A Rochester. Don't expect to see the 29-year-old up in the majors barring a rash of injuries.

  • Twins' Zack Weiss: Heads to Minnesota

    Weiss signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Weiss was released by Cincinnati in early September after spending the past six years in the organization. He only made one big-league appearance during that time -- in April of 2018 -- during which he gave up four earned runs on two hits (two home runs) and two walks while failing to record an out. Weiss spent a majority of this past season at Triple-A, and he will likely report to Minnesota's Triple-A club this coming spring.

  • Twins' Preston Guilmet: Agrees to deal with Twins

    Guilmet signed a minor-league contract with Minnesota on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Guilmet appeared in eight major-league games split between St. Louis and Toronto this past season. His 11.70 ERA and 2.20 WHIP across 10 innings of relief justified the Blue Jays' decision to designate the right-hander for assignment, and he spent the rest of the year at the Triple-A level. Guilmet will serve as additional depth for the Twins' bullpen in 2019.

  • Twins' Randy Cesar: Signs with Minnesota

    Cesar inked a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Cesar spent the 2018 season at the Double-A level in the Astros' system, hitting .296/.348/.428 with 10 home runs and 62 RBI in 116 games. The 23-year-old wound up breaking a 49-year-old Texas League record with a 42-game hit streak, during which he went 66-for-169 (.391 average) with 30 RBI in almost two months of action. The third baseman will provide some extra infield depth in Minnesota's organization moving forward.
