The Twins, in an attempt to improve their bullpen for the final stretch, have acquired relief pitcher Eddie Guardado from the Rangers in exchange for minor league pitcher Mark Hamburger. Guardado is 3-3 with a 3.65 ERA and 4 SV in 55 games this season with the Rangers. He returns to his first team that he played for from 1993-2003. Guardado was very effective for the Twins and should be effective in the final month of the season. If you are holding on to Guardado in fantasy baseball, you should probably drop him. He will not be closing any more for the Twins.
Hamburger, 21, is 1-2 with a 4.17 ERA and 13 SV in 27 appearances in Single-A Elizabethtown.
