TGB Client Dan Gamache Signs with Minnesota Twins
TGB client Dan Gamache has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Twins on a minor league agreement for the 2017 season. Gamache was drafted by Pittsburgh in the 6th round of the 2011 MLB Draft out of Auburn University and spent the last six seasons with the Pirates organization.
The Exeter, Rhode Island native came off a great year in 2015 in which he hit .335 with 5 home runs and 37 RBI's, accumulating just 36 strikeouts in 245 at-bats with Class-AA Altoona. His strong output and defensive versatility proved valuable, earning him a mid-season promotion to AAA. Gamache was invited to Pirates MLB spring training in 2016 and played the entire season at Class-AAA Indianapolis. Dan is looking forward to contributing to the Twins organization and is excited to get to spring training in 2017.
