MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins have added their latest local player to the organization.

Second baseman Pat Kelly, a product of Red Wing High School who played three seasons in college at Nebraska, has decided to skip his senior year and sign with the Twins. The Huskers announced the news on Tuesday.

Kelly was drafted in the 12th round by the Twins last week. He was a two-time first-team All-Big Ten selection and a career .319 hitter, and he started the last 135 games for Nebraska. Kelly posted a .990 fielding percentage with only three errors in 2014.
