This is a forum to update Twins minor league signings (and can be where we post Twins minor league free agents that signed elsewhere).

 

 

The Twins have brought back catcher Tomas Telis and RHP Jonathan Cheshire.

Wow, just looked at Chris Parmalee's transactions for the last few years since he left the Twins. That is a lot of bad breaks health wise. Batting 500 for the Yankees and pulling a hamstring, Broken arm in Baltimores system, two stints on the DL last year. Dudes had it rough

The Twins have added pitchers Mitch Horacek, Ryan Garton, Blaine Hardy, as well as catcher Juan Graterol as minor league free agents. ALl should start the season at Rochester.

Thanks for that report. Much appreciated. I didn't realize they had let Moya go also. Too bad, I had hoped he was going to be a keeper.

Right up there with last year's return of Pat Dean! But hey, he's a lefty.

Unlike Pat Dean, Thielbar lasted a few years and had a 2.74 ERA, though with some pretty bad peripherals. But yeah, he shouldn't sniff the majors this time around.

He’s also “one of us” so mind your Ps & Qs people. And matter of fact, he had that nice scoreless streak to begin his career here.

I hope his recent spike in K/9 is for real and either way I have no doubt he can still get some outs.

I have no problem with this... Pitched in the Premier12 last month. He was throwing pretty hard this year. I thought he had started coaching, but maybe he was just working with college players. 

 

Twins need a second lefty reliever. Blaine Hardy is an option. Thielbar thrown into the mix. 

 

Definitely not a spot I would spend a lot of money, so I am good with this.
