The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Twins are one of three teams interested in free agent catcher Kurt Suzuki. So they appear to be very interested in bringing along Josmil Pinto slowly next season while relying on Ryan Doumit and insert-free-agent-here behind the plate.
Teams I'm hearing that have interest in catcher Kurt Suzuki: Twins, Cubs, Rockies. Maybe he can join @BrettAnderson49 in Colorado!— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) December 12, 2013
The Twins have struck out in attempts to sign A,J. Pierzynski and Jarrod Saltalamacchia and have kicked the tires on J.P. Arencibia (who's headed to Texas), John Buck (free agent) and Suzuki (free agent).
No word on Mike Pelfrey or Bronson Arroyo, but I expect that the Twins had contact with both of them on Wednesday night. Thursday should be interesting, as we'll find out what happened in the suites late Wednesday night.
The talk of the night was about this incident and who could have been involved.
