Twins acquired LHP Sean Gilmartin from the Braves for C/OF Ryan Doumit.
Although not as gratifying as the 1991 World Series result, Minnesota will take the win here. The Twins didn't want to pay Doumit's $3.5 million salary next season, and now they won't have to. This transaction is great news for AL-only owners sniffing around Jason Kubel's 2014 sleeper potential, as Doumit would have been his primary competition for DH at-bats. Gilmartin might remind Twins fans of a more polished Scott Diamond, if you'll forgive the pun. The 2011 first-round pick is a southpaw with subpar velocity who pounds the strike zone with good movement. The Twins can let him marinate at Triple-A Rochester next summer because it has four veteran starters under contract and a host of fifth starter candidates already in place.

The Twins will receive pitching prospect Sean Gilmartin from the Braves in return for Ryan Doumit, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

A 2011 first-round pick, Gilmartin shot all the way up to Triple-A in his first full professional campaign. He was blasted this past at Gwinnett, however, going 3-8 with a 5.74 ERA. Gilmartin doesn't have great stuff, but he pounds the strike zone with a three-pitch arsenal. Minnesota, which is desperate for starting pitching of any kind, did well to acquire a lottery ticket for a player they no longer wanted.

Braves pitching prospect Sean Gilmartin has been placed on Triple-A Gwinnett's disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis.

A 2011 first-round pick, Gilmartin has struggled this season with a 5.83 ERA and 47/30 K/BB ratio over 71 innings with Gwinnett. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined.

Braves reassigned LHP Sean Gilmartin and RHP Wirfin Obispo to minor league camp.

Neither had a real shot to crack the Opening Day roster. One of the club's top pitching prospects, Gilmartin will be part of Triple-A Gwinnett's rotation.

Braves prospect Sean Gilmartin pitched six shutout innings Saturday, allowing only two hits in his debut for Double-A Mississippi.

He did not strike out or walk any hitters in the game, throwing 43 of his 71 pitches for strikes. Gilmartin, a 21-year-old left-hander, was the Braves' first-round selection (28th overall) in the 2011 draft.

The Braves have agreed to terms with their first-round pick from the 2011 draft, left-hander Sean Gilmartin.

Gilmartin is the seventh first-round pick to sign a contract. A promising left-handed starter, he's known for having a highly developed changeup and should move quickly through the Braves' minor league system.

Braves selected FSU left-hander Sean Gilmartin with the 28th pick.

The Braves don't go the college route in the first round very often, but they were known to be on the lookout for a left-hander. While Gilmartin doesn't have the ceiling of current Braves' left-hander Mike Minor, he is similarly known for his plus-changeup.
