Five (still) available free agents who could fit with Twins

If you don’t think the Twins have done anything so far in free agency … well, that’s not true. They did sign catcher Jason Castro, which can’t be dismissed as insignificant. He was ranked the 13th-best available player in this year’s class at the start of free agency by ESPN.com, and he’s received the 14th-largest contract so far in terms of total value ($24.5 million over three years). Of the 50 free agents deemed the best by ESPN.com, 33 have signed. That’s about one per team. The Twins have one. However: If you don’t think the Twins have done enough in free agency so far...

In a relatively quiet transaction heading into the weekend, the Twins made a pretty significant pitching decision. Hector Santiago, acquired in a mid-year trade for Ricky Nolasco, settled with the team on a one-year, $8 million deal for 2017. He pitched poorly immediately after the trade and had a 5.58 ERA with the Twins, though his final seven starts (3-2 with a 3.19 ERA) were much better. At that price and at age 29, the left-handed Santiago figures to be a good candidate to make the Twins’ starting rotation in 2017.
