The Past Week on Twinkie Town:

Elsewhere in Twins Territory:

In the World of Baseball:

  • Old friends Kyle Gibson and Lance Lynn signed with the Cardinals for one-year deals. Gibson signed for $12 million with a club option for 2025, and Lynn signed for $10 million, also with a club option for 2025.
  • Paul DeJong and the White Sox have agreed on a one-year deal, per Mark Feinsand of DeJong looks to be the short-term replacement for Tim Anderson.
  • The Padres have announced that former Cardinals manager, Mike Shildt, will be their new manager after they let Bob Melvin walk to become the new manager of the Giants.
  • Reliever Reynaldo Lopez has signed with Atlanta for a three-year, $30 million contract, which includes a club option for 2027.
  • The Diamondbacks traded for third baseman Eugenio Suárez, sending reliever Carlos Vargas and catcher Seby Zavala to the Mariners. Suárez has had high strikeout rates for the last few years, which likely was a major reason the Mariners traded him, but he also has plenty of power potential, as in the last 6 seasons, he hit over 30+ homers in four of those seasons. However, for three of those seasons, he played his home games at Great American “Small” Park.
