Twins & Tribe Deal

Minnesota (AP) - The Twins acquired veteran reliever Todd Jones from Cleveland in exchange for Adam LaRoche and a fourth round pick in the 2006 draft. Jones has a career 13-12 record, 47 saves and a 5.55 ERA while playing for the Indians and Phillies. The right handed reliever is expected to close for the Twins.

Adam LaRoche, drafted by Minnesota in the second round of the 2004 draft, hit .237 with 4 homers in limited playing time last season.
