Twins Claim Darin Mastroianni, DFA Esmerling Vasquez

The Minnesota Twins claimed outfielder Darin Mastroianni off waivers today. Mastroianni has spent his first five professional seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays. The 26-year-old hit .268/.353/.377 with 34 stolen bases in 123 games between Double-A and Triple-A this past year.

In order to make room for Mastroianni on their 40-man roster, the Twins designated right-handed reliever Esmerling Vasquez for assignment. Vasquez, 28, was selected off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks back in late September. Over the past three seasons, he's made nearly 150 appearances with Arizona, posting a 92 ERA+ over 137 total innings.
