Report: the Twins are close to a “major free agent signing”

Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors is hearing some buzz:

 

It’d be somewhat surprising to see the Twins sign a “major” free agent, as they have not been in the deep end of the free agent pool for a few years. But as Dierkes notes, the Twins have been linked to several free agent pitchers in recent days, including Matt Garza, Bronson Arroyo and Ricky Nolasco. There was also a report linking them and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who would make sense now that Joe Mauer has been moved to first base.

Because it’s the Twins, my money would be on a soft-tossing righty. They love soft-tossing righties.
