2021/22 Minor League Signings

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

The Twins cut ties with Tomas Telis during this off-season. He is one of those unique guys who will be remembered as being on the 26-man roster, but never getting a playdate (he was a COVID replacement). Former Twin Juan Graterol has landed with the Diamondbacks, after providing veteran catcher depth for the Blue Jays this season. 


It's always good to have a veteran presence at AAA who can step up to the big leagues if need be. Right now the Twins do seem pretty set with catching at their upper levels, though. One of Rortvedt or Jeffers will start regularly for the Saints, depending on Garver's status. 


David Banuelos and Caleb Hamilton are currently listed on the Saints roster. Both have paid their dues in the minors and could have a breakout season. But both could also start at the lower level Wind Surge.

Roy Morales (came from Miami) and Steve Berman (came from Dodgers) are actually older than Hamilton and Banuelos. Morales showed some style, to say the least, at Wichita. He is far from a regular behind the plate, but could be the vet bat who can also DH and play some 1B, so a chance to start at St. Paul may be a given. Wherever Berman starts it would be good if he had shared duties to egt the most games behind the plate.


Jair Camago is a darkhorse. Played regularly at Cedar Rapids. Still very young at 22 and will be starting his sixth season of fulltime pro-ball, so he will be a free agent come the end of 2022. He can also DH and play 1B, and has a pretty good percentage for shutting down base stealers.


Be inetresting to see who the Twins do pickup to add catching depth. You can never have too many real catchers on a team, and all minor league teams can comfortably use a catcher who can also play the field or offer a DH bat.

The Twins have signed right-handed bullpen arm Argenis Angulo who was drafted by Cleveland in 2014. He received an invite to the Indians in spring training of 2020. He became a free agent and signed with Oakland, getting an invite to spring training last season.


His stats aren't overall impressive, except he can strikeout batters. But still fills the bases with too many runners.
