Here are today’s minor moves from around the game.
- The Twins have released outfielder Darin Mastroianni, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press tweets. Mastroianni briefly played in the big leagues for the Twins earlier this season, but they outrighted him last month. The 30-year-old has batted just .256/.327/.300 in 203 plate appearances at Triple-A Rochester this season. As Berardino notes, the Twins recently optioned Byron Buxton to Rochester, and he figures to play center field there, leaving Mastroianni without much of a role. In parts of five big-league seasons with the Blue Jays and Twins, Mastroianni has batted .206/.271/.280 in 317 plate appearances.
