Twins bringing back veteran Matt Belisle for bullpen help


The Associated Press - June 13, 2018

DETROIT — The Minnesota Twins have signed right-handed reliever Matt Belisle to an $800,000, one-year contract, bringing back the popular veteran after a stint with Cleveland.

The Twins made the move Tuesday before their game at Detroit and designated utility infielder Gregorio Petit for release or assignment to make room on the roster.

Belisle had a 5.06 ERA for the Indians in eight appearances earlier this season before being assigned to Triple-A Columbus. The 38-year-old posted a 4.03 ERA for the Twins in 2017 in 62 appearances. He moved from setup man to a ninth-inning role after closer Brandon Kintzler was traded.

Twins relievers rank 21st in the major leagues with a 4.15 ERA.

Petit had 26 at-bats for the Twins. He hit .308 and played all four infield positions.
