Embree Claimed By Twins, Pulled Back

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Twins claimed Oakland lefty Alan Embree off waivers, but the A’s pulled him back.  He can no longer be traded this season.

Embree is having a poor season with a 5.40 ERA, but the Twins were still willing to take on the $815K still owed to him this year.  Apparently the A’s wanted more than salary relief for Embree.
