Matt Maloney, Jeff Gray Acquired By Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins announced on Monday that they have claimed a pair of pitchers off of waivers. Matt Maloney was claimed from the Cincinnati Reds while Jeff Gray was claimed off of the Seattle Mariners' waivers.

Maloney is an interesting prospect despite being 27 as he's appeared in 45 games over the last three seasons with the Reds. In his Major League career, Maloney's put together a 5.40 ERA over 80 innings. He made 14 appearances with Triple-A Louisville last season, however, going 7-1 while compiling a 2.99 ERA and 51 strikeouts.

Gray on the other hand is a bit of a journeyman. In four Major League seasons, the 29-year-old has pitched for the Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox before heading to the Mariners mid-season. Over his MLB career, Gray has appeared in 66 games while compiling a 4.57 ERA and 50 total strikeouts in 88.2 innings.

These aren't the most newsworthy moves the team has ever made, but at least they're making moves.
