The hot stove seemed to halt for a bit over the holidays, but things are back and picking up steam. Here’s the latest news, rumors, and tidbits swirling around out there.

  • The Twins have interest in free agent pitcher Tyson Ross, according to Darren Wolfson. You may recall that our Andrew Bryzgornia wrote about getting Ross to the Twins just a couple weeks ago.
  • As for actual deals, the Twins recently signed Leandro Castro, a 27-year-old outfielder from the Dominican Republic, to a minor league contract. Castro played for the independent American Association-Laredo Lemurs and Can-Am League-Boulders last season, and is expect to play for the AAA Rochester Red Wings.
  • The Red Sox are reportedly interested in signing Trevor Plouffe as a utility player. In case you somehow missed it, the Twins declined arbitration with and waived Plouffe earlier this off-season, making him a free agent.
  • Old friend Andrew Albers signed a minor league deal with the Braves.
