Twins - Acquired Fuentes
Minnesota Twins - Acquired P Brian Fuentes from the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named.
The Twins were correct to try to improve somewhere, but while Fuentes is a solid reliever (and while not as got as K-Rod, at least he didn’t hurt his hand beating someone up), the Twins have a really solid bullpen and appear to be well to the point of diminishing returns. Of course, Fuentes comes cheaply (haven’t seen any names yet for PTBNL, but I’m positive it’s not Aaron Hicks) and it’s too late for the team to pick up the solid starter that they’d love to add.
Fernando Rodney is nothing more than a stopgap closer. I’m kinda hoping that the Angels’ current Francisco Rodriguez ups the walks just a little (his 4.1 BB/9 is in the danger zone) so that I can derisively call him BB-Rod.
