Cardinals 2012 Roster: OF Erik Komatsu Claimed On Waivers By Twins

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly claimed OF Erik Komatsu from the St. Louis Cardinals, the official Cardinals Twitter account reports:

Komatsu initially came to the Cubs in the 2011 Rule 5 Draft, but after OF Allen Craig healed from his recent injury, the Cardinal elected to DFA Komatsu. The 24-year-old has displayed impressive patience in the minors, sporting a minor league on-base percentage of .398 over the course of 4 minor league seasons, and average nearly 20 steals per 500 plate appearances.

The official Twins Twitter account has indicated that Minnesota will place Komatsu on the team's 25-man roster.
