The Twins have just selected righthander Jason Jones fron the Yankees organization in the major league phase of today’s Rule 5 draft.

Jones was 13-7 with a 3.33 ERA in 25 starts at Class AA last season and 0-1, 2,38 in two starts at Class AAA. Check here for the rest of his vitals.

Jones will have to remain on the major league roster all season or be offered back to the Yankees, The Twins do have the option of swinging a deal to keep his rights if they want to send him to the minors.

I know nothing about this man, since he just came into my life. This is something I found on him right off the bat.

The Twins lost pitcher Jose Lugo to the A’s  Royals with the 12th overall pick.

The minor league phase has just begun. Check here for more later.

Update: The Twins have taken righthander Henry Arias in the Class AAA phase of the draft.

Update: Wow. Frank Robinson just walked by….
