Found November 25, 2012 on MLB Injury News:
There’s a growing sense within the Minnesota Twins organization that free agent-right hander Brett Myers could be a good fit, reports Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune. "They're interested, or perhaps even very interested," Myers’ agent Craig Landis said. "And that's about as far as we are right now." While he pitched as a late-inning reliever last season, Myers has said that he’d like to enter 2013 as a starter. Twins insiders believe he will be one of their primary targets because of his reasonable asking price and the fact that he would probably embrace the chance to become a rotation leader. Minnesota will have to get creative in order to fill its rotation next year, as they entered the offseason with one starter, left-hander Scott Diamond, penciled in for 2013. Myers, 32, started 33 and 34 games for the Houston Astros in 2010-11. He owns a career ERA of 4.20 over 11 seasons in the majors spanning 377 appearances, including 249 starts.
