Twins Interested In Orlando Cabrera

According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins are interested in free agent shortstop Orlando Cabrera.  Christensen guesses Cabrera could receive a three-year, $30MM contract this winter.

Cabrera, 34 in November, hit .281/.334/.371 in 730 plate appearances.  He has a reputation as a strong defensive shortstop, though the plus/minus system says he made just one more play than the average shortstop this year.  He's much better on balls hit to his left than his right.

I like that the Twins seem willing to throw around a little cash, but Cabrera seems a questionable target.  Rafael Furcal is risky too, but at least there's upside.
