Alan Paul Busenitz (born August 22, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball (MLB).


Busenitz attended Athens Christian School in Athens, Georgia,[1] and Kennesaw State University, where he played college baseball for the Kennesaw State Owls.[2] The Los Angeles Angels selected him in the 25th round of the 2013 MLB draft.[3] The Angels tried to use Busenitz as a starting pitcher in 2015, but returned to using him as a relief pitcher.[4] In 2016, the Angels promoted Busenitz to the Salt Lake Bees of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League.[5] They traded him to the Minnesota Twins with Hector Santiago for Alex Meyer and Ricky Nolasco on August 1, 2016.[6]

Busenitz began the 2017 season with the Rochester Red Wings of the Class AAA International League. He had a 1.25 earned run average in his first 29 13 innings pitched of the season for Rochester, and the Twins promoted Busenitz to the major leagues on June 17, 2017.[7] He made his MLB debut that day.
