Calten Daal signs with Twins

Curaçao shortstop Calten Daal has signed a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins. After seven years with the Cincinnati Reds he opted for free agency.

Calten DaalDaal broke into professional baseball in 2013 as he made his first steps with the AZL Reds (rookie). Later that season, Calten was promoted to Advanced Rookie-level (Pioneer League, Billings Mustangs). In the three following years, he moved up a level (2014, A Full Season, 2015, A-Advanced and 2016, AA).

In 2017 Calten spent all season on the Disabled List where he also spent the first part of the 2018 season. Eventually, he was activated on September 24 by the Daytona Tortugas.

In 2019, Calten played all season at AA with the Chattanooga Lookouts on second base.

In (parts of) six active seasons Daal had a lifetime batting average of .285, an OBP of .322 and a slugging percentage of .325.

As second baseman, Calten posted a .957 fielding percentage and .928 as a shortstop. In 134 games as a second baseman he committed 26 errors, while he had 66 miscues in 199 at shortstop.

Pending his performance during Spring Training, Calten will likely start the season at AA with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos of the Southern League.
