According to Aaron Gleeman, the Twins are getting Pat Light, who throws in the high 90s but has bad control. He has a 2.32 ERA with 36 strikeouts and 17 walks in 31 innings at Triple-A this season.

Light is 25 years old and ranked the 14th-best prospectby MLB.com in Boston's farm system. He was a first-round pick in 2012 – taken just five spots after Jose Berrios went to the Twins.
