The Minnesota Twins added another left-handed option to their bullpen on Wednesday, when they claimed Dusty Hughes off waivers from the Kansas City Royals.

Hughes, 28, was 1-3 with a 3.83 earned-run average in 57 appearances with the Royals last season. An 11th-round pick in the 2003 draft, Hughes allowed 59 hits, walked 24 and struck out 34.

The Twins made room for Hughes on the 40-man rotser by designating right-hander Rob Delaney for assignment.

Delaney spent most of 2010 at Class-AAA Rochester, going 7-9 with a 4.73 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 80 innings. He also pitched one inning for the Twins, allowing a run, two hits and a walk in his long big-league appearance.
