Twins' Yunior Severino: Contract selected
The Twins selected Severino's contract from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Severino had been set for minor-league free agency but instead is now on the Twins' 40-man roster. The move doesn't come as a surprise after the 24-year-old slashed .272/.352/.546 with 35 home runs between Double-A Wichita and St. Paul in 2023.

Twins' Yunior Severino: Up to 35 homers
Severino has hit .272 with 35 home runs in 120 games across stops at Double-A and Triple-A this season.

Twins' Yunior Severino: Bumped up Double-A
The Twins promoted Severino from High-A Cedar Rapids to Double-A Wichita on Thursday.
He hit .283/.398/.572 with 11 home runs across 191 plate appearances for Cedar Rapids to earn the promotion. Dating back to July 17, the 22-year-old leads the Midwest League in home runs (seven) and OPS (1.581). Severino was a highly regarded international signee from the 2016 cycle, but he got off to an unimpressive start to his career, as he never posted an OPS better than .789 at any level prior to 2021....
