The Minnesota Twins plucked White Sox minor league right-hander Terry Doyle, who made an impressive showing during the Arizona Fall League, in the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday.
The Sox did not select any prospects in the draft.
Doyle, 26, was 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA for the Mesa Solar Sox this fall. The Twins drafted Doyle second overall and paid the mandatory $50,000 fee for Rule V picks. If he doesn't stay with the Twins the entire 2012 season, Doyle must be offered back to the Sox for $25,000. Despite Doyle's strong performance in Arizona, the Sox did not protect him on their 40-man roster.
Doyle was a 37th-round Sox pick in the 2008 June draft. In 2011, he was 8-10 with a 3.07 ERA in 173 innings between Class A (high) Winston-Salem and AA Birmingham.
