Minnesota Twins Sign Left-Handed Pitcher

Joining the Minnesota Twins.

The Twins have signed pitcher Locke St. John to a minor-league contract.

St. John spent the majority of the 2022 season at the Triple-A level for the Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets, recording an 5.88 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 43 strikeouts across 49 innings.

The thirty-year-old will add bullpen depth for the Twins.

For his minor-league career, St. John holds a decent 3.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, with 507 strikeouts over 532.1 innings of work. He's made 52 starts, 173 relief appearances and converted 12 saves. 

The left-handed pitcher is a former 32nd-round pick by the Detroit Tigers in the 2014 MLB Draft.

He's made just eight appearances at the major-league level, pitching for the Texas Rangers and the Chicago Cubs.
