The Twins have designated right-handed reliever Carlos Torres for assignment, per Besty Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press (via Twitter). The move clears roster space for fellow righty Sergio Romo, who was acquired from the Marlins yesterday.
The Twins’ ongoing bullpen shuffle ends Torres’ brief tenure in Minnesota. His contract had just been selected Wednesday to replace fellow reliever Blake Parker, who was himself designated for assignment. Torres, 36, never got into a game for the Twins, but he did pitch in four games earlier this season for Detroit, showing a low-90’s fastball. He’s also pitched in the Padres’ organization this season and again figures to draw interest on a potential minor-league deal once he (presumably) clears waivers.
