Twins' Wynston Sawyer: Inks deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sawyer agreed to a minor-league contract with Minnesota on Friday, Mike Berardino of The Pioneer Press reports.

Sawyer spent most of last season with Double-A Tulsa for the Dodgers, slashing .277/.333/.429 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 54 contests. The 26-year-old backstop will likely remain in Double-A to start the 2018 season, and hasn't received any time in Triple-A or the majors during his professional career to this point.

Twins' Taylor Featherston: Signs minor-league deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Featherston agreed to a minor-league contract with the Twins on Friday, Mike Berardino of The Pioneer Press reports.

Featherston has played in 137 major-league games during the course of his professional career, and although most of those appearances came in 2015, he will be able to provide added infield depth for Minnesota heading into this upcoming season. During the 2017 campaign, the second baseman spent most of his time at the Triple-A level -- which is where he will likely begin next year -- and hit just .179/.277/.359 during 39 at-bats in the big leagues for the Rays.

Twins' Fernando Rodney: Signs with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodney reached a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Twins on Thursday, Craig Mish of SiriusXM reports.

Rodney's deal offers incentives that could bring the value up to $6 million, as the 40-year-old will move on to his ninth different major-league team since breaking into the big leagues in 2005 with Detroit. During this past season with the Diamondbacks, Rodney posted a 4.23 ERA and collected 39 saves, which ranked in the top five In the majors, and were his most since recording 48 in 2014. Moving forward, he will open the year as Minnesota's closer, and could once again be a great source of saves while posting subpar ratios (by closer standards).

Twins' Tyler Kinley: Goes to Twins in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinley was selected by the Twins with the 13th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

A 26-year-old right-handed reliever, Kinley logged a 3.54 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 72 strikeouts in 53.1 innings last season between Double-A and Triple-A. The Twins will have to keep him on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Marlins.

Twins' Michael Pineda: Signs two-year deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pineda (elbow) signed a two-year deal with the Twins on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old righty underwent Tommy John surgery on July 18, and figures to miss most, if not all of the 2018 season. This gives him some short-term security and a chance to hit the market again after hopefully reestablishing his value in 2019, while it give the Twins an affordable, high-upside starter for 2019. Pineda has generated worse run-prevention metrics than the fielding-independent numbers suggest, as his career 3.60 FIP is quite a bit lower than his career 4.05 ERA. While he hasn't posted an ERA under 4.30 since 2014, he typically strikes out around a batter per inning, and in 2016 he notched 207 strikeouts in 175.2 innings, so there is plenty of long-term upside for dynasty-league owners.
