Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.
The Twins announced Wednesday that they are officially declining Matt Capps’ $6 million option for 2013, paying the $250,000 buyout, which makes Capps a free agent.
The Cubs have claimed Twins relief prospect Carlos Gutierrez off waivers. Gutierrez, a 2008 first-round draft pick, had a right shoulder injury last season.
The Twins also announced that they’ve trimmed six other players from their 40-man roster: Esmerling Vasquez, P.J. Walters, Kyle Waldrop, Jeff Manship, Luis Perdomo and Matt Carson.
