2:13pm: According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Twins have acquired Eddie Guardado from the Rangers.  Joe Christensen wrote on Friday that the Twins would make a claim but didn’t expect a deal.

Guardado has been useful for the Rangers, posting a 3.65 ERA in 49.1 innings.  The ERA is a bit deceiving, but it’s still a helpful addition for the Twins.  Guardado is a familiar face, having spent a decade in the organization.  He’s still owed roughly $620K this year.
