Twins Complete Deal

Twins Complete Deal

The player to be named in the trade that sent catcher Drew Butera from Minnesota to the Los Angeles Dodgers now has a name.

The Twins announced on Tuesday that they have acquired left-hander Miguel Sulbaran from the Dodgers to complete the trade. The Twins sent Butera, who spent most of the season at Triple-A Rochester, to the Dodgers just before the trade deadline at the end of last month.

The 19-year-old Sulbaran went 6-4 with a 3.01 ERA in 23 appearances for the Single-A Great Lakes Loons. Sulbaran started 16 games for the Loons.

He will report to Single-A Cedar Rapids.
