Twins send pitcher Robles to Red Sox in deadline deal

The Minnesota Twins made a flurry of moves ahead of Friday’s MLB trade deadline, including sending relief pitcher Hansel Robles to Boston.

After signing a one-year deal with the Twins this past offseason, Robles threw 44 innings for the Twins, going 3-4 with a 4.91 ERA and 43 strikeouts.

In exchange, the Twins received minor league pitcher Alex Scherff, KSTP Sports confirmed.

Earlier in the day, the Twins traded starting pitcher Jose Berrios to Toronto for a pair of highly-regarded prospects.

Minnesota also got a pair of relief pitchers from St. Louis in exchange for pitcher J.A. Happ.

Additionally, the Twins claimed pitcher Edgar Garcia off waivers from Cincinnati and assigned him to Triple-A St. Paul.

The moves come a week after the team traded designated hitter Nelson Cruz to Tampa Bay.
