Twins trim two from spring roster

Twins trim two from spring roster

FT. MYERS, Fla. -- The Twins made two additional cuts on Sunday morning.

Left-hander Carmen Cali was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester and right-hander Kevin Mulvey was reassigned to Minor League camp.

Cali is out of options, but he cleared waivers which allowed the Twins to keep him in the organization. In his 3 2/3 innings this spring, Cali allowed one hit while walking three.

"We're not going to keep two short lefties, situational lefties," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of the move. "[Dennys] Reyes is throwing good, he's healthy, the whole package. [Cali] didn't throw the ball great. He didn't throw the ball over enough here early in spring. But we know what he can do. He came up last year and pitched with us. He just has to go down there and pitch and be ready if something happens with our situation here."

Mulvey, 22, was one of three pitchers the Twins received from the Mets in exchange for Johan Santana. He made a strong impression with the coaching staff during his stint in big league camp. Mulvey was 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA over six innings.

The Twins now have 40 players remaining in camp.
