The Twins have outrighted righty Kohl Stewart, per a team announcement. The club also confirmed a host of other, more significant transactions that had previously been reported.
Stewart has elected free agency, officially bringing an end to a seven-year tenure with the Minnesota organization. Now 25 years of age, he landed with the club as the fourth overall pick of the 2013 draft.
Though he drew top prospect grades for some time after being drafted, Stewart ran into trouble in the upper minors. He did ultimately crack the majors but hasn’t shown much ability to get swings and misses from MLB hitters. In 62 total frames, he carries a 4.79 ERA with 4.9 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9.
