The Minnesota Twins don’t seem to be a team ready to compete in 2014 but that’s apparently no stopping them from trying to do something in the free agent market. According to beat writer La Velle E. Neal of the Star Tribune, the Twins are one of the teams interested in bringing in free agent pitcher Matt Garza.

Per La Velle E. Neal:

The Twins would likely have to outslug several teams, including the Angels, in order to land Garza. He would join free agents Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes in a seriously enhanced Twins rotation – if they could pull this one off.

Minnesota has been trying to shore up their pitching rotation for a few years now and one of the reasons it has taken so long is that they traded away a guy they thought would be their number 1 starter. Matt Garza was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays a few years back when Minnesota brought in Delmon Young but they now have little to show for it.

Bringing back Garza is a real option for the Twins right now and it sounds like he’s willing to return of that’s what the cards hold. It’s far from a done deal but Minnesota seems to be willing to bring back their former prized prospect and this time he’s likely going to be valued a little bit more than he was in the past.
