"I'm not exactly sure what direction they're going," Crain said. "They like to build from within, but with that said, I don't know what they will do. There are a couple of prospects coming up, but they don't have a lot of experience. It will definitely be interesting to see how it will play out. Losing me and (set-up reliever Matt Guerrier to the Dodgers as a free agent) will hurt them. The Twins were never really in the running—surprisingly or unsurprisingly. They weren't looking to sign a guy for more than $3.5 million a year. They were out from the beginning, and we didn't even negotiate with them. They have been smart with the way they do things, but we'll see."
