Transaction Update

Once again, Baseball America has posted an update on minor league transactions, and there are a couple of new faces to add to the list for the Twins. If you go to the page, you'll see that Randy Choate and Matt LeCroy are just being mentioned now, but I've mentioned them in previous postings so I'm not going to say anything about them here. There are, however, two other new additions:

Domingo Reyes - LHP
The 22-year-old Reyes was drafted back in 2003 by the Pirates, but never signed. I haven't been able to find any record of what he's been doing since then, but the Twins must have caught up with him somewhere, so I would assume that he's been pitching for someone, somewhere. Not knowing Reyes' background, I can't say whether he's more likely to start out with a full season team (probably Beloit), or whether the Twins will hold him in extended spring training and assign him to a rookie ball team.

Luis Ugueto - 2B/SS
If you think you've heard this name before, you're probably right - Ugueto has 74 games of Major League experience (although just 28 at-bats, which tells you all you need to know about his offensive abilities) with the Seattle Mariners. Last year, the 28-year-old Ugueto spent his season with AAA Omaha in the Royals organization. This move was likely made to add a little bit of depth to the AAA middle infield, but I wouldn't expect him to take much playing time away from Tommy Watkins or Alexi Casilla.
