The Chicago White Sox have re-acquired pitcher Terry Doyle from the Minnesota Twins, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. Doyle was selected by Minnesota in the Rule 5 draft during the offseason, but now he's returning to Chicago as he wasn't going to make the team's 25-man roster.
Minnesota paid $50K in order to acquire Doyle from Chicago in the first place, and Chicago will return half of that money in order to get Doyle back. The 26-year-old spent last season split between Chicago's Single-A and Double-A affiliates, posting a 3.07 ERA with 122 strikeouts and 33 walks over 173 innings.
Doyle would have needed to stay on Minnesota's active roster or MLB disabled list all season in order to stay in the organization given his status as a Rule 5 pick.
