MILWAUKEE -- The Twins on Monday signed righthander Casey Lawrence, who spent last season in Japan. Lawrence has cleared the COVID-19 intake testing and has been assigned to the St. Paul camp.

His last stint in the majors came in 2018 when he posted a 7.33 ERA in 11 relief appearances for Seattle. He's appeared in 38 major league games over two seasons with Seattle.

The Twins also have outrighted outfielder Aaron Whitefield from the 40-man roster. He has cleared waivers and has been sent back to St. Paul. He appeared in three games with the Twins as a reserve, going hitless in one at official at bat.

That leaves the Twins' player pool at 59.

The Twins begin a three-game series at Miller Park on Monday night. The Brewers designated former Twin Logan Morrison for assignment before the game. Ryan Braun (infected finger) is still on the 10-day Injured List.
