The Twins acquired Minor League infielder Daniel Ozoria from the Angels in exchange for right-hander John Curtiss on Tuesday. Curtiss was designated for assignment Monday to make room on the 40-man roster for newly acquired right-hander Richard Parker.
Ozoria, 18, hit .222/.293/.263 over two seasons between the Dominican Summer League, the rookie-level Angels and rookie-level Orem Owlz. He was signed out of the Dominican Republic as an undrafted free agent in August 2016.
Curtiss, 25, was a sixth-round Draft pick in 2014, and ranked as Minnesota's No. 26 prospect by MLB Pipeline. He posted a 7.20 ERA in 17 Major League appearances from 2017-18. In 38 appearances (one start) at Triple-A Rochester last season, he posted a 2.77 ERA and a 25 percent strikeout rate.
