The Minnesota Twins selected the contract of outfielder Clete Thomas from Triple-A Rochester on Monday and designated lefthanded pitcher Tyler Robertson for release or assignment. Thomas had to be added to the 40-man roster.
Thomas was hitting .296 with eight doubles, nine home runs and 25 RBI in 36 games for the Red Wings. The 28-year old outfielder appeared in 12 games for the Twins last year after being claimed off waivers from Detroit in April.
Robertson, who was selected by the Twins in the third round of the 2006 draft, made the Twins Opening Day roster before being optioned to Triple-A on April 6.
