Twins Outright Wilkin Ramirez

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Outfielder has been removed from the 40-man roster.

According to sources, the Minnesota Twins have outrighted Wilkin Ramirez. This means that Ramirez is no longer on the 40-man roster and is on waivers.

Ramirez has already passed through waivers, which means he could re-sign with the Twins on a minor league contract. Minnesota did the same thing with Doug Bernier in the last two weeks.

Breaking camp with the Twins at the start of the season, Ramirez actually made the Opening Day roster. A concussion cost him time in the middle of the summer, but he returned to Minnesota in August for another stretch of games before fracturing his shin at the end of the month and missing the remainder of the season.

In 35 games and 87 plate appearances for Minnesota, Ramirez hit .272/.302/.370 while grading out well defensively in center and right fields. With his removal the Twins remain at 36 players on the 40-man roster, as Ramirez had been on the 60-day disabled list.

Samuel Deduno is still on the roster and the 60-day disabled list, which means the roster will go to 37 players as soon as he is activated.
