Twins Claim Clete Thomas

The Twins have claimed Clete Thomas off waivers from the Tigers, reports MLB.com's Jason Beck (on Twitter). The team confirmed the move and announced that they've placed Scott Baker on the 60-day DL to open a 40-man roster spot. Detroit designated Thomas for assignment earlier this week

Thomas, 28, has appeared in three games this season. He has a .253/.336/.391 line in 443 MLB plate appearances, most of which came during the 2008-09 campaigns. Thomas played for Triple-A Toledo last year, posting a .251/.314/.401 line in 406 plate appearances while playing all three outfield positions.

 Actually considered that some good news.. Boston already had several people at Pawtucket just like him.. Why add yet another?? Repco, Nava, Kroeger..

what a shock. N?o I take that back. A lesser shock would have been that minor league team in Cleveland.

You won’t find a more wide-eyed player in the majors.  LOOKOUT Clete! Sadly, his name is not a variation of Cletus.

Why not claim Brandon Allen and send Parmelee down?

What CrisE said, and they want Revere to get regular playing time in Rochester.

I played with Clete throughout our entire lives growing up.  We always said if anyone went pro it would be him.  #Mosley Dolphins
