Minnesota Twins Designate Pitcher For Assignment

The Minnesota Twins have designated Jharel Cotton for assignment.

Cotton has been DFA'd quite often this season by the Twins, but he has cleared waivers each and every time. This is a trend that we will likely see continue, but at the same time, it wouldn't be bad for another club to take in Cotton for some bullpen help. He has been effective this season in the majors, as his 2-2 record and 2.83 ERA in 25 appearances. 

If Cotton clears, he has the opportunity to elect free agency instead of accepting an outright assignment by the Twins. We will have to wait and see what happens from here with the reliever.
