A note from Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
I’ve been told it’s highly doubtful the Twins will sign a Type A free agent, which would cost them their first-round draft pick next June, though they have checked into some of the Type A relievers and are in a “Never say never” mode.
The Twins own the #23 pick in next year’s draft. Players such as Orlando Cabrera, Doug Brocail, Juan Cruz, Darren Oliver, and Russ Springer would presumably cost them that pick.
Christensen also notes that the Twins had strong interest in Jeremy Affeldt and scouted Dayan Viciedo.
