Gilmartin, 23, went 3-8 with a 5.74 ERA (91.0 IP, 58 ER), 33 walks and 65 strikeouts in 17 starts for Triple-A Gwinnett (International League) last season. He has a career record of 12-20 with a 4.23 ERA (285.1 IP, 134 ER), 74 walks and 223 strikeouts in 54 games (53 starts) during three seasons in Atlanta's minor league system.

Gilmartin will be signed to a minor league contract and will be invited to Twins Spring Training.

The Twins roster is now at 39.
