Twins claim outfielder Komatsu from Cardinals

The SportsXchange

The Minnesota Twins have claimed outfielder Erik Komatsu from the St. Louis Cardinals, the team announced today.

To make room on their roster, the Twins have designated outfielder Clete Thomas for assignment. Also, infielder Sean Burroughs cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Rochester.

Komatsu batted .211 in 15 games for St. Louis this season. He was selected by the Cardinals in the 2011 Rule 5 Draft after playing in the Milwaukee and Washington organizations. The Cardinals designated him for assignment earlier this week.

Thomas, who was claimed off waivers from the Tigers three weeks ago, batted .143 with one home run and four RBIs in 12 games for the Twins.
