Twins Interested In Guardado

Everyday Eddie Guardado, a Twins mainstay for a decade, has apparently been placed on waivers by the Rangers.  Joe Christensen says the Twins are interested and will probably make a claim, but don’t expect to make a deal.  He says the Twins were eyeing Guardado in July but wouldn’t meet the Rangers’ price.

Guardado is currently closing for the Rangers, getting it done with a 3.21 ERA.  A deeper look at his numbers indicates rougher waters ahead, but he’s certainly a useful reliever.  As far as I can tell, Guardado only has about $680K left on his contract this year.  I’d imagine several teams will put in a claim, but I would’ve said the same for David Weathers.
