Minnesota Twins Place Starter On Waivers

Headed to the waiver wire.

The Minnesota Twins have designated pitcher A.J. Alexy for assignment.

Alexy was acquired from the Texas Rangers just a couple of weeks ago, but he gets pushed off the 40-man roster with the team's addition of Michael Taylor this week.

For his major-league career, the twenty-four-year-old holds a 6.30 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 23 strikeouts across 30 innings of work, all with the Rangers.

Alexy has found more success in the minors, however, registering a 3.93 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and 465 strikeouts over 396 innings. He's made 78 starts and 27 relief appearances so he offers some versatility. 

There's a decent chance that Alexy goes unclaimed on waivers and will remain with the Twins as rotation depth.

He is a former 11th-round pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2016 MLB Draft.
