The Twins have signed 32-year old lefty reliever/starter Mike O’Connor to a minor league deal. He pitched in 31 games (15 starts) in AAA-ball for the Yankees last year and he was 3-6 with a 3.73 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2011 for the Mets. He has now pitched in 35 games (21 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 4-10 with a 5.30 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. O’Connor will get a shot to win a bullpen job next spring.
