Twins acquired RHP Stephen Pryor from the Twins for 1B/DH Kendrys Morales; assigned him to Triple-A Rochester.
It's essentially a salary dump. Pryor has spent the majority of the 2014 season at Triple-A Tacoma, where he owns an underwhelming 4.65 ERA in 31 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander could join Minnesota's bullpen soon, but only as a middle reliever. Jul 24 - 2:47 PM
