FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins optioned Jose Mijares to its Triple-A team after the left-handed reliever had a rocky spring training.

Over 10 innings pitched, he's given up 18 hits and nine walks while striking out seven. His ERA stands at 9.90.

Mijares started last season in Double-A, but took over as the main setup man in late September and posted an 0.87 ERA with only three hits allowed in 10 1-3 innings.

The team also announced Tuesday that it was sending catcher Drew Butera to Triple-A. Catcher Jeff Christy and infielder Alejandro Machado are going to Minor League camp.

The Twins now has 30 active players remaining in camp, including 14 pitchers.
