Bonser, 28, was considered one of the top pitching prospects in baseball after being selected in the first round of the 2000 draft by the Giants, but injuries have largely derailed him. He missed all of last season while recovering from surgery to repair a slightly torn labrum and rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
He was expected to compete for the fifth spot in the Twins rotation this year, until Carl Pavano accepted arbitration and made him expendable.
He was part of one of the most lopsided trades in big league history, when the Twins sent catcher A.J. Pierzynski to the Giants on Nov. 14, 2003, for left-hander Francisco Liriano, future closer Joe Nathan and Bonser.
He has a lifetime record of 18-25 with a 5.12 ERA in 96 appearances (60 starts) with the Twins.
