Julianel Signs With Twins

February 5, 2008

Ben Julianel, who made 52 appearances in a Thunder uniform during the 2004 and 2005 seasons, has agreed to a minor league deal with the Minnesota Twins.

Acquired by the Yankees along with Justin Pope in the Sterling Hitchcock deal, the 28-year-old southpaw has spent the past two seasons in the Florida Marlins organization.  He struggled mightily in his first taste of Triple-A last season, going 2-2 with a 6.23 ERA in 27 games.
