A couple quick afternoon notes
The Twins have definitely increased their offer to Mike Pelfrey this week to two yrs and around $12 million. Will the Twins leave it at that and look elsewhere if he doesn't take it or increase the offer in order to get the righthander to sign?
The club is believed to still have interest in righthanders Bronson Arroyo and Matt Garza, but the one deal I know the most about is Pelfrey's, and the sides aren't that far apart.
And here's a Miguel Sano update. The slugging prospect was shut down early in winter ball season because of a strained right ulnar collateral ligament. But he's been examined in Fort Myers, Fla., and has been given a clean bill of health. He'll return to the Dominican Republic, where he'll resume throwing, then return to Fort Myers in January to train in advance of the 2014 season.
