Wednesday Twins trade rumors: Kurt Suzuki, Josh Willingham

Here's your morning update, with a little over 30 hours remaining until the trade deadline. Josh Willingham and Kurt Suzuki continue to be the most talked about commodities out of Minnesota. Here's what's been said over the last few hours. Kurt Suzuki Suzuki rumors haven't changed much since yesterday's reveal that the Orioles were "out" of the sweepstakes. I still find that a curious position, but going by Baltimore's lack of a playoff history over the last decade and a half I probably shouldn't be surprised. At any rate, Jayson Stark's brief mention of the situation jives with yesterday...

Twinsights: Brian Duensing could draw trade interest as he moves closer to free agency

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Boston’s Andrew Miller and Philadelphia’s Antonio Bastardo lead the list of left-handed relievers that could be on the move in advance of Thursday’s 3 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline, but Brian Duensing figures to draw interest as well. According to a source, the Twins have yet to approach Duensing’s camp about a possible multiyear contract despite the fact he’s pitched to a career-best 2.27 earned run average and 1.185 WHIP (walks plus hits per innings pitched). Duensing, who can handle both lefties (.231 batting average allowed) and righties (.244), is maki......

Twinsights: Family a key factor in Josh Willingham’s baseball future

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ask Josh Willingham if he has decided whether to play beyond this season, and the Twins slugger gives a thoughtful pause. “I could play five more years or two,” Willingham, 35, said recently. “I don’t know. Obviously the family thing is a big part. We have three kids. They enjoy being around the clubhouse too.” This is the family trip for the Twins, which means Willingham and wife Ginger have their three young boys, ages 2 through 7, in tow. The Willingham clan has been more visible this year in the Twins clubhouse as the veteran left fielder closes out a th......

Twinsights: Berrios’ shoulder feeling better after Trenton scare, source says

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Twins pitching prospect Jose Orlando Berrios had to walk off the mound on Tuesday night at Trenton, N.J., but his throwing shoulder was feeling much better on Wednesday morning. “Jose’s fine,” said a person with direct knowledge. “No pain, no tightness today. No need for further medical exam.” Berrios, 20, was removed from his fourth start at Double-A New Britain on Tuesday night with what a source termed right shoulder tightness. Berrios had thrown 48 pitches in less than two innings, 24 of them for strikes. Berrios allowed three runs on four hits and t......

Twinsights: Replay mechanics leave Gardenhire in the dark

KANSAS CITY -- Standing next to the third-base dugout during a three-minute, 31-second replay review in the middle of the third inning Tuesday, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire didn’t have any doubt. The only question in his mind -- and in that of second baseman Brian Dozier -- was whether Dozier would be placed on third base or sent home on a sinking liner by Chris Parmelee that replays seemed to show clearly bounced before left fielder Alex Gordon could grab it. Dozier’s main question: Do I wear my helmet or not? “We all saw the replays,” Gardenhire said after Tuesday’s 2-1 wi......
