Minnesota Twins Sign Catcher

On Saturday, the Seattle Mariners released Chance Sisco from his minor league contract. Yet, it hasn't taken the 27-year-old catcher long to find a new home, as the Minnesota Twins have now signed him to a minor league deal. 

Sisco is expected to start the season in Triple-A, but there certainly is reason to believe that he could get called up as the 2022 campaign progresses. He comes with a decent amount of overall major league experience and could provide them with another option at the backup position. 

The 2021 season wasn't particularly impressive for Sisco, however, as he had zero home runs, two RBIs, and a .149 batting average in 28 games between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets. Needless to say, if he does get the opportunity to play with the Twins, he will be aiming to bounce back. 

Overall, there's nothing wrong with Minnesota taking a chance on Sisco. At worst, they have added some depth at the catcher position for when injuries occur. However, if he impresses in Triple-A, he very well could find himself on their major league roster soon.
