The Twins have outrighted utility infielder Doug Bernier, according to the MLB.com transactions page. He was back in the lineup for Triple-A Rochester late last week, so he evidently accepted the assignment.
The 35-year-old signed a minor league deal with the Twins after they outrighted him following last season. Bernier then played several weeks for Rochester before being promoted in early May. He collected just six plate appearances with the Twins before being optioned back to the minors.
Bernier has a .254/.326/.308 line in 188 plate appearances with Rochester this season. The Triple-A veteran has 83 career plate appearances in the big leagues, spread across four seasons with the Twins and Rockies.
