Twins vs. Marlins 3/24

By: Kelly Thesier/

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Twins announced this morning that they’d agreed to terms with left-handed pitcher Ron Mahay on a Minor League contract with an invitation to Major League camp.

This will be the second stint with the Twins for Mahay, 38. He gave up two runs over nine innings (16 innings) with Minnesota late
last season after being designated for assignment by Kansas City in August.

The move appears to be an attempt by the club to add depth to the bullpen due to the loss of closer Joe Nathan. Mahay won’t be an option to close. But if the club should decide to shift other relievers in that role, Mahay could provide another lefty in the ‘pen.
