Twins select contract of pitcher Derek Law, option Cody Stashak

The Minnesota Twins announced Saturday that the team has selected the contract of pitcher Derek Law from Triple-A St. Paul and optioned pitcher Cody Stashak to Triple-A St. Paul.

Law made one scoreless relief appearance for the St. Paul Saints, allowing one hit and one walk, with two strikeouts, on May 6 in Omaha.

The 30-year-old right-handed pitcher did not allow a run in eight spring training games for the Twins earlier this year, striking out 13 batters in 8.0 innings while allowing just three hits and three walks, the team reported.

Lawn’s uniform number will be 54.

Meanwhile, to make room for Law on the 40-man roster, the Twins have designated infielder Travis Blankenhorn for release or assignment.

Blankenhorn played in one game this season, on April 21 in Oakland, and scored a run for the Twins.
