Where will Glen Perkins be on April 1, 2010?

Glen Perkins began 2009 as one of the most successful pitchers in the starting rotation.  Well at least for the first month or so.  He then ran into a series of injuries, most of which surfaced after a bad stretch on the mound.  Perkins did not improve his relationship with his skipper, and I suspect others in the upper echelons of management. 

After a rehab stint in Florida, Bill Smith optioned Perkins to Rochester rather than bring him back to the Twins for September.  The effect is that Perkins missed enough service time to be eligible for arbitration as a super Two.  Perkins then filed a grievance complaint with the union in an attempt to recover the service time.  Although the terms aren't available, the Twins have acknowledged that, 1) the grievance has been settled without going to a hearing; 2) Perkins received some additional service time; and 3) Perkins was signed to a one-year contract, the terms of which are not available.

So what does this all mean?
