The Twins have designated OF Jason Kubel for assignment to make room on the roster for the recently-signed Kendrys Morales, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports. Kubel, 32, slashed .224/.313/.295 with one home run in 176 plate appearances. He is sad to leave Minnesota:
Just talked to an emotional Kubel. “I just had a lot of good memories. A lot of big wins. A lot of big homers. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Yesterday, the Twins signed the 30-year-old Morales to a one-year deal for the prorated portion of $12 million.
