December 15, 2017
Wimmers agreed to a minor-league deal with Miami on Friday which includes an invitation to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Wimmers appeared in six big-league games for the Twins during this past season, posting a 4.91 ERA and 2.18 WHIP with a 7:8 K:BB over 7.1 innings of relief work. Despite those shaky numbers, he performed much better at the Triple-A level, where he will likely begin the 2018 season. The 29-year-old right-hander will need to prove that he can keep his control in check in order to earn any sort of shot with Miami in the future.

After failing to see eye-to-eye with the front office in Milwaukee, former first-round pick Brett Lawrie got on the right track in Toronto.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
2011
The former first-round draft pick had a career revival with a 9.1 K/9 and 3.62 ERA at Triple-A. It led to a brief cup of coffee with the Twins in September, but he could only muster a 4.15 ERA and a 7.3 K/9 out of the Minnesota bullpen. Wimmers is on the right side of 30, but his lack of strikeout ability and control could relegate him to organizational depth.
Wimmers, a first-round pick by the Twins in 2010, spent the 2013 season working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He struggled with the team's rookie-level affiliate, posting a 7.20 ERA over six starts, and ongoing elbow issues may have played a role as he underwent surgery in October to decompress the radial nerve in his right elbow. His health is uncertain heading into spring training and it looks like he may fail to live up to his first-round promise due to his injuries.
Wimmers, Minnesota's 2010 first-round draft pick out of Ohio State, had a strong professional debut by allowing one run in 15.1 innings at Low-A Fort Myers with a 23:5 K:BB ratio. He has a 90-93 mph fastball, a good breaking ball and the best changeup in the draft class along with sharp control. He'll likely begin 2011 in Double-A, with a chance to reach the majors as soon as 2012.
