Ahead of Series in San Francisco, Twins Claim ex-Giants Pitcher

Chris Heston is expected to be back in San Francisco this weekend.

The former Giants pitcher, who was with the Dodgers Triple-A affiliate, was claimed off waivers Wednesday by the Twins.

Minnesota begins a three-game series at AT&T Park on Friday night.

The Twins are Heston's fourth team since December.

The Giants dealt Heston to Seattle on Dec. 7 for a player to be named later. After making just two appearances for the Mariners, he was put on waivers and claimed by the Dodgers.

Heston reported to Triple-A Oklahoma City and pitched in one game. He gave up three earned runs in three innings of relief.
