Twins sign two to Minor League Contracts

Nick Laham

Joe Christensen had an article in today's Star Tribune about two minor league signings. No one had posted it here, so I thought I should get it to you.

The exciting player is 30 year old closer Tim Wood. Wood, who was named by Baseball America as the International League's best reliever last year, posted a 2.19 ERA with 21 saves in 54 games with Indianapolis (Pirates AAA farm club). He pitched in the big leagues during parts of the 2009-2011 seasons, pitching in 57 games (58.0 innings) with a 4.50 ERA. Woods, who has battled shoulder and elbow problems throughout his career, was signed to a minor league contract as Mr. Ryan looks to repeat the success he had last year when he signed Casey Fien and Jared Burton.

The Twins also signed catcher, Eric Fryer. Fryer, who hit .204 average in 65 games for AAA Indianapolis last year, was likely signed to provide depth at Rochester who recently lost two catchers to free agency, Rene Rivera and J. R. Towles.
