Friday Afternoon Link Dump: Jepsen, Strong, Burton What?

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Three Twins-related news items for you to read after you apply for the Cleveland Cavaliers coaching job:

  • Minnesota and Kevin Jepsen avoided arbitration by agreed to a one-year, $5.312,500 deal. He was neither Ron Davis nor Matt Capps after the Twins acquired him last season to bail out the bullpen, so let's give this 8 Gardys out of a possible 10 Gardys.
  • The Twins claimed Stillwater native Mike Strong from the Miami Baseball Marlins and designated Logan Darnell for assignment.  Strong is a lefty reliever whose given name is Mike Strong.  7 Gardys out of 10.
  • Former Twins reliever/beard enthusiast Jared Burton got dinged with a 50-game suspension for the drugs.  1 Gardy out of 10.
