Byung-ho Park close to signing with Twins?

Reports have emerged this weekend, indicating that a deal could be close between the Twins and the Korean slugger. Speculation picked up earlier this weekend when it was revealed that Byung-ho Park was on his way to Minnesota to meet with the Twins. Nearly three weeks ago it was announced that the Twins had won exclusive negotiation rights with Park with their $12.85 million posting bid. The deadline for the teams to come to an agreement is 4pm central on December 8, which is still more than a week away, but there's no doubt that both sides would prefer to find common ground before...

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was set to return to the lineup for Estrellas on Sunday after missing 10 days in the Dominican Winter League for non-injury reasons. “He is fine,” Estrellas general manager Jose Serra told the Pioneer Press in an email. “(He) needed to go to the States for a request of his organization, as he explained to us.” Sano, 22, was in Chicago last weekend, according to a person familiar with his travels. It’s not uncommon for the Twins to request young players to return from winter ball for midseason medical evaluations, but Sano has held up […] The post...

Addition to 40-man roster means hefty raise for Twins prospects

Here’s something I frankly did not know but certainly makes sense: getting added to a team’s 40-man roster, as happened today for seven Twins prospects, isn’t just a matter of prestige or getting one step closer to realizing a dream of making it to the majors. It also comes with a nice bump in pay. I noticed Seth Stohs, who does a great job writing about the Twins and their minor leaguers, tweeting about it earlier today. And per this equally informative site run by baseball agent/attorney Jeff Blank, we can see the particulars. These figures are a couple of years old but still in the...
