Cotts was reportedly claimed off of waivers by an unknown team earlier this morning, so therefore that team must have been the Twins. He was claimed due to a relatively low salary ($3 million full season) and was traded because he is a free agent at the end of the year.
The Twins had been in the market for relief pitching at the trade deadline, with their group of relievers greatly underperforming to a 4.33 xFIP this year (last in MLB).
On the season, the 35-year-old Cotts is 1-0 with a 3.28 ERA (4.75 FIP) in 49 1/3 innings, posting 8.8 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 ratios. Overall, he has a 48 to 17 strikeout-to-walkratio.
