Minnesota Twins Pick Up Brian Fuentes and Randy Flores

Brian FuentesThe Minnesota Twins bolstered their already tough bullpen this week. Earlier last week the team claimed Randy Flores, a veteran left hander from the Colorado Rockies. Then on Saturday, the Minnesota Twins claimed left handed closer Brian Fuentes from the LA Angels. Brian Fuentes is a 4 time All-Star and led the American League in saves a year ago. His welcoming had been worn out in LA and Minnesota will definitely take him.

It was said Fuentes was claimed for a "player to be named later" or "cash considerations" so it is still in the air about what was given up for him. However, most Minnesota Twins fans feel like this is a good steal for the team. He will face mostly lefties and share opportunities with closer Matt Capps. Welcome aboard Flores and Fuentes!

  1. this was a primo pick-up. as far as someone having to go down to the minors, we are only talking a couple days here as the roster can be boosted come november. quite the steal.
