Minnesota Twins Designate Veteran Pitcher For Assignment

The Minnesota Twins are making a change to their roster, as they have designated Joe Smith for assignment.

Smith's removal from the Twins' 40-man roster is one that may not surprise too many fans. The 2022 season has been a year of mixed results for the 866-game veteran. In 34 games, he sports a 1-1 record to go along with a 4.61 ERA.

If Smith ends up electing to become a free agent, there could be some interest in his services. In 866 career games, Smith has a 55-34 record and 3.14 ERA.
