Twins Minor League Signings


I thought I should set up a thread for minor league signings. Use this thread to post when the Twins sign a minor leaguer or when a former Twins minor leaguer signs with the team or elsewhere. 

 

 

Jake Reed has signed a minor league deal with the Angels.

 

Today we see that Sam Clay has signed a Major League contract with the Nationals. 

 

The Twins have re-signed catcher Tomas Telis.

The Twins signed righty Derek Law to a minor league contract for some bullpen depth. Has a history of putting runners on base, but can strike guys out, too. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/l/lawde01.shtml

 

Oh, and they added Danny Coulombe back into the mix.

Here's hoping Reed actually gets a shot and does well, just not against the Twins.

 

I always wondered about Clay. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he at St Paul this summer? Or am I confusing him with someone else?

 

You can't keep everyone, but was sorry to see him leave. IIRC, he just couldn't handle RH hitting very well but put up some good numbers otherwise.

Law appears, as you stated, to be a depth piece. OK-ish BA against at .257. Nice K numbers per. Outrageous BB numbers. Possible sleeper?? No clue about stuff or velocity.

Yes, Clay was in St. Paul this season. He was on the taxi squad several times but never got the call. Very cool to see him get on the Nationals 40-man roster.

Twins added three pitchers as minor league free agents.

 

Juan Minaya returns. He actually was called up to the big leagues and was an official roster addition in 2020 but never pitched. Anyone know the other players who have been on the Twins roster but never played during the season?

 

Glenn Sparkman joins from the Kansas City organization and Luke Farrell from the Rangers. Both have big league experience and are righties but appear to just be minor league depth at the moment.

Twins signed JT Riddle to a minor league deal. The guy can playa cross the doamond, and especially as a backup at shortstop or centerfield. 

 

29-years-old. Minimal time the past two seasons on Pittsburgh and (2019) Miami.

And just to be complete, we also got a few more recent minor league deals here:

Sure could get confusing if Broxton comes up as an injury replacement for Buxton.

 

And other pitchers mentioned are RHPs Robinson Leyer and Chandler Shepherd, just to complete the list of folk mentioned as signed in the article.

Is this the third time Albers has signed with the Twins? They should just make him a coach, already.

 

Broxton is a guy I would have liked to get in at a younger age, but he just never panned out. I'd rather see Celestino play over him since Broxton's main selling point would be his fielding abilities in CF, and Gilberto has that in spades.

Might i also add (and considering my handle here, it has a special place in my heart) that looking over Albers' stats, he is batting 1.000?

 

An unstoppable force for the Twins! Indeed, while playing for St. Paul, no Twins' opponent will be able to anything to stop him.
