Passan: Twins and Braves close on Doumit deal
According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan, the Twins and Braves are finalizing a deal that involves catcher/outfielder Ryan Doumit.
Ken Rosenthal reports the Twins acquire LHP Sean Gilmartin in exchange for Doumit. Gilmartin is a 23-year-old lefty whom Baseball Prospectus wrote this in the 2013 Annual:
The Braves’ first-round pick in 2011, Gilmartin reached Triple-A in his first full professional season. There’s reason to believe he could reach Atlanta in his second. Gilmartin throws strikes and attacks batters with a three-pitch mix. His changeup is the best offering of the bunch, and grades out as an above-average offering. The fastball is nothing special from a velocity standpoint—often sitting in the high-80s—but Gilmartin can put it where he wants and cut it when he wants. His outlook varies from mid- to back-end starter, depending on how sold you are on his ability to overcome his so-so stuff.
