Minnesota Twins Place Right-Handed Pitcher On Waivers

To the waiver wire.

The Minnesota Twins have recently made a roster move by designating right-handed pitcher Trevor Megill for assignment.

This move was made to create space for Brock Stewart, a right-hander who was promoted from Triple-A St. Paul.

Megill had signed a minor-league deal with the team in December 2021 and recorded a 4.80 ERA in 39 relief appearances last season.

However, he struggled with a 13.70 ERA in 9.2 innings while playing for St. Paul earlier this season. Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reported that Megill's struggles contributed to the decision to clear a roster spot for Stewart.

At 29 years old, Trevor Megill primarily serves as a relief pitcher and had not made an appearance in the major leagues this season despite being on the Twins' 40-man roster.

With his recent designation for assignment, Megill will have to go through the waiver process, and we'll see if any team puts in a claim for him.

For his minor-league career, the right-handed pitcher owns a 3.97 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 268 strikeouts over 192.2 innings and 131 appearances.

It remains to be seen whether he will remain with the Twins organization or seek opportunities elsewhere. Photo Credit: Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports
