Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Twins announced that they've added outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, righthanded reliever Carlos Gutierrez and lefthander Tyler Robertson to their 40-man roster.

They also trimmed righthander David Bromberg from their 40-man roster, outrighting him to Class AAA Rochester.

The Twins also announced that they've signed former Angels reliever Jason Bulger to a minor-league deal. Bulger, 33, has recorded 138 strikeouts in 133 career major league innings, but he's also issued 75 walks.

He went 6-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 64 games for the Angels in 2009 but was limited to 25 appearances because of a shoulder issue in 2010.

After making the Opening Day roster last year, Bulger was designated for assignment and went to Class AAA Salt Lake, where he posted a 4.03 ERA in 35 appearances, with 49 strikeouts (and 17 walks) in 38 innings.
