The Twins have called up young reliever Gabriel Moya. The 22-year old lefty was acquired by Minnesota before this year’s trade deadline in exchange for John Ryan Murphy.
While in Double-A, the native Venezuelan posted an impressive 0.77 ERA with a matching 0.77 WHIP and recording 87 strikeouts over 58.1 innings.
In a corresponding move, the team has designated Engelb Vielma for assignment. The 23-year old shortstop is expected to clear waivers but will likely hang around with the Twins for a little longer.
