News: Cotts was traded to the Twins immediately following Friday night's game for a player to be named later or cash.
Impact: Cotts has served mainly as the second lefty out of the bullpen for Milwaukee and served well, putting together a 3.28 ERA in 50 appearances. The 35-year-old is a free agent after this season, so this is a pure rental for Minnesota as it pushes for a wild card spot. As long as Cotts isn't forced to face many right-handers (.284/.376/.471 slash line against) he could be an asset for the Twins, who rank in the bottom 10 in bullpen ERA in the majors.
