Minnesota Twins Acquire Three New Players

The Minnesota Twins have bolstered their roster with the addition of three experienced players: Zack Weiss, Jay Jackson, and Carlos Santana, each bringing unique skills and a wealth of experience to the team.

Zack Weiss, a right-handed pitcher, was claimed off waivers from the Boston Red Sox.

Weiss's addition comes as part of the Twins' strategy to strengthen their bullpen, although specifics about his role within the team or the terms of his acquisition were not disclosed.

Weiss's journey in MLB has been marked by his moves between teams and his efforts to establish himself as a reliable option in relief pitching​.

Carlos Santana, a seasoned first baseman/designated hitter, has signed a one-year contract with the Twins.

At 37, Santana brings a rich history of performance, including a .240 batting average with 33 doubles, one triple, 23 home runs, and 86 RBI in the previous season, split between Milwaukee and Pittsburgh.

Santana is not just an asset at the plate but also in the field, having led all major league first basemen with 11 defensive runs saved last year, showcasing his defensive prowess alongside his offensive capabilities​.

Jay Jackson, another right-handed pitcher, also joins the Twins on a one-year deal.

Last season, Jackson made 25 appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays, posting a 3-1 record with a 2.12 ERA, underscoring his effectiveness in relief.

His addition to the Twins' bullpen is expected to provide depth and experience, contributing to the team's pitching strength​. Photo Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports
