Robles, 30, has a 4.91 ERA this season, as well as a 4.82 FIP through 44 innings pitched, despite recording a 2.48 ERA through 72.2 innings pitched in 2019. The right-hander has posted a 9.64 ERA in the month of July, allowing four runs through just 2/3 of an inning in his most recent outing.
In return, the Twins will be getting right-handed pitching prospect Alex Scherff , who has a 2.45 ERA with High-A Greenville this season. The 23-year-old is Rule 5 eligible this coming offseason.
