Vogelsong, 39, has 12 seasons of big league experience with the Giants and Pirates and this will be his first entry in the American League as he contends for a spot in the starting rotation. Vogey was an All-Star in 2011 and won World Series titles with San Francisco in 2012 and 2014.
Former ACBL players Zac Granite
(Seton Hall, Staten Island Tide) and Aaron Slegers
(Indiana, Riverhead Tomcats) will join Vogelsong at the Twins Major League Spring Training camp in Fort Myers.
Granite, a speedy centerfielder, was the Twins' Minor League Player of the Year after putting up big numbers at AA Chattanooga which included 55 stolen bases.
Slegers, a 6-10 RHP, went 10-7 at Chattanooga with a 3.41 ERA in 145 innings.
