    Kendrys Morales

    The Twins have apparently signed him. New DH or sign that Arcia's injury is significant?

    Not me. Anyone know why he's still unsigned?

    Didn't he have draft pick compensation attached until today?

    Assume the draft is over (or close enough to over so it no longer attaches).

    This took me by COMPLETE surprise! This means that the Twins have officially put a fork in Kubel, that's all I know.

    My guess? Kubel is gone; and maybe Parms, too?

    Wonder how long this was in the works? Since the Arcia and Hammer injury?

    Kubel has to be done and Parmelee is on his last legs now.

    Kubel's done. Maybe he can stay around as a 'veteran presence' consultant. I know Gardy values that.

    With Arcia, Hammer and Morales, the corners are covered and so is DH. The only thing that scares me is will this mean that the Twins hold on to all their veterans all season?

    Well, Hammer and Correia were the only likely veterans to be traded; and I'm not sure either would have fetched much value. That Willingham doesn't have a viable replacement doesn't bode well for him being traded. As for Morales, I'm really curious about the terms; the contract may extend past this year.

    Is this real life? Good to see the Twins spending some money when we need another bat.

    • Morales to #Twins confirmed. One-year deal. Dollars less than Drew but "in ballpark," source says. First reported: @JonHeymanCBS


      On a 1-year deal wouldn't that mean somewhere around $8 million?
