The Minnesota Twins have unconditionally released right-hander Anibal Sanchez after a three-week stint with the club.

The move was made Sunday, clearing a space on the 40-man roster. The Twins, according to multiple reports Saturday, agreed to terms on a one-year, $12 million contract with free agent right-hander Lance Lynn to further upgrade their rotation. The team has not confirmed the reported deal with the Lynn, who went 11-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 33 starts for the St. Louis Cardinals last season.
