Minnesota Twins Sign Left-Handed Pitcher With Impressive Numbers

The Minnesota Twins have made an addition to their minor league roster by signing left-handed pitcher Caleb Baragar to a contract with their Triple-A affiliate, the St. Paul Saints.

Baragar, who is 30 years old, brings a seasoned presence to the bullpen, having demonstrated solid performance in the Atlantic League with the Lancaster Stormers.

Over three starts this season, he posted an impressive 2.25 ERA, striking out 18 and walking five across 16 innings.

Before joining the Saints, Baragar played with the Columbus Clippers in 2023, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians, where he faced some challenges.

Despite a higher ERA of 6.54 across 23 relief appearances, he managed to strike out 41 batters in 31.2 innings while maintaining a .227 batting average against.

His early performances with the Clippers showed potential, featuring a series of scoreless appearances that underscored his capabilities.

The Twins are optimistic about Baragar's potential impact, given his major league experience with the San Francisco Giants, where he achieved a 2.78 ERA in 49 appearances between 2020 and 2021. Photo Credit: D. Ross Cameron-USA TODAY Sports
