Twins Interested In Rich Harden

The Twins were in contact with the agent for free agent pitcher Rich Harden, sources tell La Velle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune.  The right-hander is represented by Brett Laurvick of the Wasserman Media Group.

Harden, who has been hampered by injuries in recent years, is attempting a comeback after missing the 2012 season.  Harden would likely sign a minor league deal and be invited to major league spring training. It's not clear at this time if the veteran is attempting to come back as a starter or a reliever.  The situation, according to Neal, is heating up quickly.

Harden spent the 2011 season with the A's and posted a 5.12 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 15 starts.  The 31-year-old also missed the bulk of the 2006 and 2007 seasons due to injury.
