Twins optioned RHP Stephen Pryor to Triple-A Rochester.

Twins acquired RHP Stephen Pryor from the Twins for 1B/DH Kendrys Morales; assigned him to Triple-A Rochester.

"We're not going to rush this young man. He's throwing good, he feels good. But we need to get that velocity up where it needs to be for him to be the dominant guy we know he can be. You just can't rush the process." Pryor is expected to miss the first few months of the 2014 regular season.
