The Twins have been in contact today with the agent for righthander Rich Harden, according to multiple sources.
Harden, who has been hampered by injuries in recent years, is attempting a comeback after a year away. He would likely sign a minor league deal and be invited to major league spring training. It's not clear if he's attempting to come back as a starter or a reliever.
Stay tuned. This one is heating up pretty quickly.
