The deal was announced Monday. The Twins assigned Nunez to Triple-A Rochester. Analysis: Signed by the Yankees in 2004, Nunez came up to the major leagues in 2010 and was seen as a possible successor to Derek Jeter at shortstop. But he struggled defensively, was beaten out by Yangervis Solarte during spring training for a backup infield job and was designated for assignment last week. The 26-year-old Nunez hit .267 in 270 games for the Yankees with 10 homers and 76 RBIs.
