The Minnesota Twins have brought back another player from their division title teams of the previous decade: Matt Guerrier.
The Twins announced Wednesday that Guerrier had agreed to a minor league contract and will attend big league spring training. The 35-year-old right-handed reliever had a 3.38 ERA in 472 innings with the Twins from 2004-10. They won the AL Central four times in that span.
Outfielder Jason Kubel and shortstop Jason Bartlett will also be in camp next month on minor league deals. Kubel played with Twins from 2004-11 and Bartlett from 2004-07.
Guerrier signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011 as a free agent. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs last summer before a flexor tendon injury near his elbow ended his season and required surgery.

The Twins announced Wednesday that right-handed reliever Matt Guerrier has signed a minor-league deal and has an invitation to major league spring training.

MINNEAPOLIS -- New Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki wants to make one thing clear: He's not Joe Mauer.
Suzuki joins his new team in part because Mauer switched positions this offseason, moving to first base full time. That left a void behind the plate for Minnesota, which inked Suzuki to a one-year, $2.75 million deal this winter. A career .253 hitter, Suzuki isn't close to the...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Miguel Sano might be the first of the Twins' current crop of prospects to debut in the majors, but he hopes to take another with him.
"Alex Meyer, my brother," Sano said, referencing Minnesota's top pitching prospect. "I told him, he said, 'When you go to the big leagues, I've got to go too, man.'"
Many of the same fans that...
The Minnesota Twins have released left-hander Andrew Albers, allowing him to sign with a South Korean team.
The Twins announced Thursday the 28-year-old Albers cleared waivers. He will join the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Early in the off-season, Ricky Nolasco signed with the Minnesota Twins for $49 million over four years. Over the weekend, Matt Garza signed with the Milwaukee Brewers for $50 million over four years. While these contracts are nearly identical, the two pitchers could hardly be more different. Over the last three seasons, Nolasco has averaged […]
Former Twins pitcher Andrew Albers has signed a contract and will pitch in South Korea's top baseball league in 2014. The Korean Baseball Organization said Albers has signed a deal with the Hanwha Eagles that will pay $800,000, including a signing bonus.
Albers, 28, had several strong starts for the Twins last season but faded a bit -- finishing with a 2-5 record and 4.05 ERA...
