Minnesota Twins Place 5-Year Veteran Outfielder On Waivers

The Minnesota Twins recently made a significant roster move by designating outfielder Kyle Garlick for assignment.

This decision was prompted by Garlick's underwhelming performance both in the majors and minors this season, despite his previous success as a right-handed platoon specialist.

The Twins now have a week to either trade Garlick or pass him through waivers.

In the event that he rejects an outright assignment, Garlick would forfeit the remainder of his salary.
In 14 games this season, he's slashed a paltry .179/.233/.429 line, with two home runs and four RBIs.

Although his current struggles may have contributed to the decision, Garlick's past accomplishments could still attract interest from other teams seeking outfield depth.

Over his five-year career, the 31-year-old has posted a .225/.277/.438 triple-slash line, with 19 home runs, 41 RBIs, one stolen base, and 50 runs scored across 158 games played.

For now, his future with the Twins remains uncertain as the organization evaluates their options. Photo Credit: Nick Wosika-USA TODAY Sports
