Dustin Morse tweeted that the Twins have activated Matt Capps from the Disabled List.

I'm sure they'll throw him in some low-leverage situations.

So Seth, was it some sort of sports version of a Freudian Slip that caused you to post this on the "On the Farm" section? Or just wishful thinking? :)

For all the Matt Capps fans out there, take a good look. We won't be seeing Matt Capps in a Twins uniform next year.

I would not be surprised to see Capps get a 1- year offer from the Twins AGAIN.

Keep pouring money down that drain until they prove he was a good acquisition.

So I am assuming that any situation that the Twins put Capps into is a low-leverage situation because they aren't actually in the playoff hunt.

I expect both Capps and Pavano back next year.

Psssshh. They don't even have to make an offer. All they have to do is pick up the $6.5m option on Cappsie.

Capps wants to get out and prove he still has something left in the tank before the Twins cut him loose and he hits the free-agent market. I wouldn't give him any innings if it's at the expense of one of the younger players. I don't see that the Twins feel they should owe him anything at this point (other than his considerable buyout).

Lets see that cutter...over/under 1 strikeout for the rest of his career?

So there wasn't enough innings to go around for Slama or Guerra but Gardy can dig up a few for Capps?

Why limit him to low leverage situations? That makes no sense, either he's healthy, or he's not....

Of course. Capps is a proven MLB-closer

let him pitch and place him on waivers.....maybe we can get a bag of BP balls or something for him.

But then the other team would have to pay his buyout
