    Twins Sign OF Ryde Rodriguez

    According to Baseball America, the Twins have signed outfielder Ryde Rodriguez to a minor league contract. The 24 year old is from Havana, Cuba. He signed with the Cardinals in 2008 as a free agent and stayed with the organization until last season. After 13 games in the Florida State League, he was released. He signed with Rockland of the CanAm League. In 56 games, he hit .267/.325/.385 with 10 doubles and four home runs.

    Looks like a little organizational depth. If he sticks, he could play in Ft. Myers in 2012. It might depends upon whether Aaron Hicks and/or Angel Morales begin the season with the Miracle.

    Maybe the Target Field PA crew will hold onto Kevin Slowey's "Slow Ride" music in case Rodriguez makes an appearance.

    That is an interesting move...
    After he was released by the Cardinals he played Independent ball and hit a respectable .267/.325/.385
    Truth of the matter is the the Twins do not have much of OF depth in the lower minors (Arcia aside) now that Rosario is a second baseman. So a bit more OF depth doesn't hurt, but he is 24...

    I just figured he was signed to help make Jorge Soler's transition to the organization easier....
