Twins Non-Tender Then Re-Sign Lester Oliveros

The Twins non-tendered right-hander Lester Oliveros prior to last night's deadline, reports Phil Mackey of 1500 ESPN (on Twitter). Oliveros then re-signed with the club on a minor league contract.

Acquired from the Tigers as the player to be named later in last year's Delmon Young trade, the 24-year-old Oliveros has allowed 12 runs with 12 walks and 14 strikeouts in 23 big league relief innings over the last two years. He dominated in the minors this season, pitching to a 2.42 ERA with 9.5 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 48 1/3 innings.
