AL Central Notes: Twins, Perkins, Jacobs

Here's a look at the latest out of the AL Central..

  • Twins GM Terry Ryan says that he's willing to trade anybody, including coveted reliever Glen Perkins, writes Mike Beradino of the Pioneer Press.  "If somebody overwhelms you with something, then you've got to listen," Ryan said. "There's no question. You just can't say, 'No.' It's not just Glen Perkins. It would be anybody in this situation. If somebody wants to talk about a guy, I'm all ears. Go ahead."  Perkins is under contract for a combined $10.3MM through 2015 with a team option for 2016 at $4.5MM.
  • In today's column, Buster Olney of ESPN.com (insider sub. req'd) writes that rival GM continue to believe that the Twins don't want to part with Perkins.  However, the left-hander's value is at its zenith and he would bring in a nice haul for Minnesota.
  • Jim Margalus of South Side Sox breaks down the newly-acquired Brandon Jacobs, who came to the White Sox in the Matt Thornton deal.
