Ken Rosenthal reporting the Twins have acquired an arm for the bullpen

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports


Desperate to turn around one of the leagues worst bullpens, Ken Rosenthal is reporting the Twins have acquired Kevin Jepsen from the Tampa Bay Rays. Jepsen has appeared in 46 games this year for the Rays and owns a 2.81 ERA in 41.2 innings this season.

His strikeout numbers have dipped and his walks are up since 2014, but the 31 year old throws hard and will hopefully help stabilize a bullpen that has had its fair share of problems.
