Twins acquire Michael A. Taylor from Royals
The Twins designated right-hander A.J. Alexy for assignment to make room for Taylor on the 40-man roster.
Taylor, 31, slashed .254/.313/.357 with nine home runs and 43 RBIs across 124 games with the Royals last season.
The veteran outfielder spent his first seven seasons with the Washington Nationals, helping the club win a World Series in 2019.
Taylor has earned a reputation as one of the game's premier defensive center fielders, winning a Gold Glove with the Royals in 2021.
Sisk posted strong numbers across two minor-league levels in 2021. The 25-year-old registered a 5-1 record with a sparkling 1.57 ERA and 76 strikeouts across 63 innings.
Cruz, 23, struggled at Double-A, going 1-4 with a 5.14 ERA and 72 strikeouts across 56 innings.
