Here are the day’s minor transactions:
- The Twins have agreed to a minor league deal with lefty Nick Greenwood, as reflected on the MLB.com transactions page and as MLBTR has confirmed. Greenwood, 28, has 36 major league frames on his ledger, with a 5.25 ERA and 4.3 K/9 versus 1.3 BB/9, while working almost exclusively as a reliever. But he’s pitched mostly as a starter in the minors, and has turned in three quality outings for the indy league New Britain Bees thus far in 2016. Greenwood has spun 19 scoreless innings on the year, with 17 strikeouts against only four walks and 13 hits. He’ll certainly enter a situation with plenty of opportunity in Minnesota, where there’s been a good deal of recent turnover in the pitching staff.
