Twins Sign Kyle Davies

The Twins have signed 29-year old right hander Kyle Davies to a minor league contract which does not include an invitation to spring training. Davies last pitched in 2011 for the Royals, where he'd been since going to Kansas City from Atlanta in 2007.

At one point in his career Davies was considered to have a bright future, rated by Baseball America to be the 53rd best prospect. Since then his Major League track record has proven him to be a hittable pitcher who can struggle with command. His slider is okay, but none of his other offerings (including his 92 mph fastball) have proven to be particularly effective.
