The Minnesota Twins claimed left-handed pitcher Brooks Raley from the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. The team announced it would add him to the 40-man roster, which will now be full.

Raley will report to spring training with the rest of the pitchers and catchers in Fort Myers on Sunday.

Raley, a sixth-round pick of the Cubs in 2009 out of Texas A&M, appeared in 14 games with Chicago from 2012-13, posting a 1-2 record and 7.04 ERA in 38 1/3 innings with a 1.643 WHIP. He struck out 30 batters (7.0/9 IP), but also walked 19 (4.5/9).

Last season with Iowa of the Pacific Coast League, Raley pitched in 27 games (25 starts) and was 8-10 with a 4.46 ERA and 1.323 WHIP.

Raley is the seventh left-handed pitcher on the Twins' 40-man roster, joining Logan Darnell, Scott Diamond, Brian Duensing, Edgar Ibarra, Kris Johnson, Glen Perkins and Caleb Thielbar.
