Some Twins signing news from this week:
Glen Perkins gets a 1-year deal. This surprised me, as I thought he was on the outs with the Twins organization. I guess being a lefty on a team that hoardes pitching has its benefits.
Alexi Casilla is also back for another year, and being given his umpteenth chance to win a starting role.
One more year of Matt Capps (that sound you hear is me getting down on my knees to pray that Joe Nathan comes back strong). He’s not that bad…but not that good, either.
Jon Rauch is now a Blue Jay. Perhaps he will thrive again as more of a setup option, like his 2009 role. He lucked into some gimme saves here last April, and held the job for far too long. If only his repetoire and velocity were as intimidated as, well, him!
