Wolfson: Twins prepared to be aggressive in FA
Wolfson: Starting pitching on the Twins' radar
1500ESPN.com’s Darren Wolfson writes that league sources have told him that the Twins are already active in the free agent market, showing interest in pitchers Jason Vargas (9-8, 150 IP, 109/46 K/BB and 4.29 xFIP), Ubaldo Jimenez (13-9, 182.2 IP, 194/80 K/BB and 3.62 xFIP) and Ricky Nolasco (13-11, 199.1 IP, 165/46 K/BB and 3.58 xFIP). Wolfson also says that the Twins are believed to have Ervin Santana (9-10, 211 IP, 161/51 K/BB and 3.69 xFIP) on their radar.

In the event of signing Jimenez or Santana, the team would need to forfeit their second round draft pick, a move that General Manager Terry Ryan had said he was willing to make in order to improve the team.
