Twins Pursuing Lyon, Gagne

MLB.com’s Kelly Thesier has an update on the Twins’ ongoing search for a setup man.  According to her report, the team is focused on Brandon Lyon and Eric Gagne.

  • Lyon has drawn interest from several teams this offseason and, according to his agent, could sign with one of them next week.  The Tigers and Cardinals are two of the teams in pursuit of his services.  The 29-year-old righty posted a 4.70 ERA while recording 26 saves for the Diamondbacks last season.
  • A source told Thesier that the Twins have actually discussed terms with Gagne’s representatives.  He’s coming off his worst major league season and should come fairly cheap.  Then again, his agent is Scott Boras.
