Apparently Tim Stauffer was ready for something new.
After spending the entirety of his career, which began in 2005, with the San Diego Padres, Tim Stauffer has decided to move on to the Minnesota Twins on a one-year, $2.2 million deal according to Phil Miller. Throughout the entirety of his career, he has been a middle-reliever and has started a total of 73 games throughout his career. Last season, he went 6-2 in 44 appearances with a 3.50 ERA.
The Twins clearly struggled last season with relief, as their bullpen was the 21st worst in baseball, giving up 236 runs, which falters in comparison to Seattle at number one, who gave up 157 runs.
The Twins look finished this for the offseason (I’m serious this time) unless an unforeseen trade or signing occurs.
Over his career, Stauffer has gone 32-34 with a 3.87 ERA over 575 innings pitched.
