Twins Sign Carrasco to Contract

March 31, 2001

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) _ The Minnesota Twins added a familiar face to their bullpen Friday, signing Hector Carrasco to a minor league contract.

Carrasco, 31, spent parts of the last three seasons with the team before a late-season trade sent him to Boston last year. He had a 2.45 ERA with Toronto this spring before being cut.

Carrasco adds an experienced, hard-throwing right arm to the Twins’ relief corps. He’ll help righty Bob Wells and lefties Travis Miller and Eddie Guardado set up closer LaTroy Hawkins.
