Right-hander rewarded for successful Minor League season
The Twins added right-handed pitcher Julio DePaula to the 40-man roster. DePaula went a combined 3-3 with a 2.09 ERA and 10 saves in 51 appearances in the Minors this past season. He started the year at Class A Fort Myers and pitched in eight games before being moved up to Double-A New Britain where he went 2-2 with a 2.57 ERA in 43 relief appearances.
The move to add DePaula to the roster comes one week after the Twins outrighted left-handed pitchers Dave Gassner and Justin Jones and infielder Terry Tiffee off the 40-man roster.
