Ledezma, Punto, Wilson, Rasmus, Cabrera, Kang

25

Happy Monday morning, folks. Here are a few nuggets we've gathered over the last few days.

Get to know your 2015 Twins non-roster invitees

7

Twins interested in Asdrubal Cabrera?

33

Could Minnesota find a place on the roster for the 2011-2012 All-Star?

Ervin Santana contract details

Santana feels like a great addition, and the market would certainly agree. But his numbers are highly reminiscent of Nolasco.

Just say no, however.

Tony O Denied Again

8

So close: Oliva falls one vote shy of enshrinement. He hit .304/.353/.476 in 15 seasons with the Minnesota Twins, accumulating 40.7 fWAR. He was Rookie of the Year in 1964, made every All-Star team from '64 through '71, and took home batting titles in '64, '65, and '71.

Still no traction with Masterson for Twins

1

For the second time in the last two days, we've been told that the Twins haven't been able to get their foot in the door for Justin Masterson. Is Masterson just waiting for someone to get serious? Is he not interested in coming to Minnesota? It's hard to say, but for the time being this door appears closed.
