The Minnesota Twins continue to wait on word from free agent left-hander Joe Saunders, according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500. The Twins continue to await word from pitcher Joe Saunders' agent, Greg Genske. Wolfson adds that the Twins continue to believe internally that Saunders prefers to pitch elsewhere next season. However, the left-hander could ultimately run out of options and have to accept Minnesota’s offer. The Twins want to sign Saunders to a one-year contract, but they may be willing to move to two guaranteed years for the veteran. It has been reported that Saunders is seeking a three-year contract. The Baltimore Orioles seem to be the team that interests Saunders most, but they have only offered him a one-year deal thus far. The belief is that if Saunders ultimately accepts a one-year contract it will be with Baltimore, but the Twins may still be able to ink him if they bump up their offer to two years. Minnesota has had a busy offseason, adding several rotation candidates, including Vance Worley, Mike Pelfrey, Kevin Correia and Rich Harden.

Player Profile #115: Josh Willingham | OF | MIN

Josh Willingham has played for three different teams in the last three years. Chances are he’s also made the rounds in your fantasy league as well. And that’s because Willingham has proven himself to be a borderline top-100 player (or better), yet no one really has any intention of valuing him that highly. You could even say we’re guilty of that with our 2013 projection (.261...

Indians add former All-Star reliever Matt Capps

The Cleveland Indians have signed veteran reliever Matt Capps to a minor league deal. Capps pitched well in the first half of the 2012 season but missed almost the entire second half while dealing with shoulder issues. By signing Capps to a minor league deal the Indians have little-to-no financial concerns should the 29-year-old prove to be unhealthy when the season starts. Should...
