It sounds like the Twins were nearing a deal with Ervin Santana, according to Joel Sherman. However, Sherman later deleted that tweet and replaced it with this.
Going to rephrase on Ervin Santana: Hearing #Twins pushing to get deal with Santana.— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) December 11, 2014
Then Chris Cotillo chimed in...

... and then this is perhaps most interesting.
Schedule change for Terry Ryan has moved up his meeting with Twin Cities media (3 of us) by 40 minutes. Hmmm.— Mike Berardino (@MikeBerardino) December 11, 2014
Yes, I realize I didn't post them in chronological order. Oh well. I'll keep you all posted as more details emerge.
Well, the speculation of Terry Ryan moving up his meeting with the Twin Cities media to announce some news turned out to be a false alarm. As he often does, Ryan would not confirm the Twins' interest in Santana, which is interesting considering we have multiple sources that state that there is an offer on the table for Santana to consider.
