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 avoided arbitration with infielder Alexi Casilla on Sunday, agreeing to a one-year, $865,000 contract.

That leaves five arbitration eligible players: Matt Capps, Delmon Young, Francisco Liriano, Kevin Slowey and Glen Perkins. If no agreements can be reached, the sides will exchange figures on Tuesday, with hearings scheduled for February.
