Twins released OF Darin Mastroianni.

The move clears the way for the recently-demoted Byron Buxton to play center field in Triple-A. Mastroianni, who turns 31 later this month, appeared in seven games with the Twins earlier this season and was batting .256/.327/.300 over 51 games in Triple-A.
Aug 9 - 11:09 AM

Twins activated OF Darin Mastroianni from the 15-day disabled list; sent him outright to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Mastroianni, who has been out since late May with an oblique strain, has the ability to elect free agency over accepting an assignment to the minors.
Jul 4 - 6:10 PM

Darin Mastroianni (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester of Friday.

Mastroianni has missed the last three weeks with an oblique strain. He should be ready for activation soon, although it wouldn't seem to be a guarantee that he returns to the big club.
Jun 17 - 4:40 PM

Darin Mastroianni (oblique) ran straight-ahead sprints and played catch on Tuesday.

Mastroianni also swung a bat underwater without issue. The outfielder has been on the 15-day major league disabled list since May 25 with a strained left oblique muscle. He should be ready around mid-June.
Jun 7 - 5:54 PM

Darin Mastroianni (intercostal) resumed baseball activities on Friday.

He played catch Friday and is hoping to resume hitting sometime over the weekend. Mastroianni looks to be on track for a mid-June activation.
Jun 3 - 5:52 PM

Twins placed OF Darin Mastroianni on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

An oblique strain will typically require 3-4 weeks of recovery for a position player. Mastro is hitless in 11 plate appearances this season at the major league level.
May 25 - 11:10 AM

Twins purchased the contract OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Rochester.

Mastroianni, 30, is getting another shot in the majors despite hitting just .208/.330/.247 so far this season at Rochester. He'll back up in the outfield.
May 6 - 1:54 PM

Darin Mastroianni singled, walked, stole his fourth base and scored twice Sunday against the Yankees.

He's batting .414, but it didn't matter how well Mastroianni played this spring; the Twins' position-player roster was always completely set, assuming no one got hurt. If options weren't a factor, the Twins would consider keeping Mastroianni as a fifth outfielder over Danny Santana. However, Santana can't be sent down without going on waivers, which essentially guaranteed his spot on the club.
Mar 27 - 3:40 PM

Twins signed OF Darin Mastroianni to a minor league contract.

The deal likely includes a spring training invite. Mastroianni is a familiar name to Twins fans, as the 30-year-old appeared in 114 games with the club from 2012-2014. He's just outfield depth this time around.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 10:46:00 AM

Nationals acquired OF Darin Mastroianni from the Phillies for cash considerations.

Mastroianni didn't make the Phillies' Opening Day roster and has not seen time in the bigs this season. The Nationals have certainly dealt with their fair share of outfield injuries, but as a .212/.274/.289 career hitter, Mastroianni doesn't have major league upside.
Tue, May 5, 2015 02:44:00 PM

Phillies reassigned OF Darin Mastroianni to minor league camp.

Mastroianni had little chance of landing a spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old outfielder is a .212/.274/.289 career major league hitter.
Wed, Mar 25, 2015 04:29:00 PM

Phillies signed OF Darin Mastroianni to a minor league contract.

The 29-year-old outfielder is expected to get an invitation to spring training as well. He has struggled whenever given an opportunity at the big league level, slashing just .212/.274/.289 over 273 career at-bats spanning four seasons.

Darin Mastroianni has elected free agency.

The speedy outfielder was outrighted off of the Blue Jays 40-man roster in September. While he has blazing speed, he just hasn't proven the ability to hit major league pitching, slashing a dreadful .116/.136/.186 in 43 at-bats between the Jays and Twins in 2014. He'll look to continue his career elsewhere on a minor league pact.
Sat, Oct 4, 2014 01:07:00 PM

Blue Jays sent OF Darin Mastroianni outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

The speedy outfielder was designated for assignment early last week to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. He struggled mightily in his 43 at-bats in the big leagues this year, going 5-for-43 (.116) with a 10/1 K/BB ratio.
