Just two days into spring training, the Minnesota Twins have already added to the roster.
The Twins on Thursday signed left-hander Rafael Perez to a minor league contract, the team announced. The 30-year-old Perez will report to camp in Fort Myers, Fla., on Saturday.
Perez missed most of the 2012 season with a left shoulder injury and eventually had surgery on the shoulder in September. He spent his entire seven-year major league career with the Cleveland Indians, making 338 relief appearances. He posted a 3.64 ERA with 268 strikeouts in 329 innings.
