The Twins have sent one of their offseason free agent signings packing.

Pitcher Homer Bailey has been designated for assignment or release by the Twins, just three days before the post season starts.

Bailey pitched in just two games for the Twins, going 1-0 with seven strikeouts and three walks over 8.0 innings pitched. He had a 3.38 ERA.

The Twins selected the contract of pitcher Edwar Colina. Colina has spent the season at the Twins alternate site in St. Paul.
