Twins signed LHP Nik Turley to a minor league contract.
Turley split the 2016 season between independent ball and the Double-A affiliate of the Red Sox, posting mostly underwhelming numbers. The 27-year-old has yet to appear in a major league game and it probably won't happen in Minnesota, though lefty relievers do tend to get nine lives. Turley was a 50th-round pick of the Yankees in 2008. Oct 27 - 7:42 AM
