Bryan native Matt Wisler has made the opening day 30-man roster for the Minnesota Twins, who began their coronavirus-delayed season against the Chicago White Sox on Friday.
The 2020 season is Wisler’s sixth at the Major League level, and in his first five seasons across 129 appearances and 57 starts while playing for four franchises — the Braves, Reds, Padres and Mariners — he carried a 19-27 record with 304 strikeouts and a 5.20 earned run average.
He spent time with both the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners in 2019, carrying a 3-4 record and a 5.61 ERA across 44 appearances and eight starts.
Wisler was claimed off waivers by the Twins — his fifth MLB team — in late October 2019.
The 27-year-old Wisler is a 2011 Bryan graduate and began his professional baseball career after being drafted by the Padres in the seventh round of the 2011 MLB Draft.
