I had fun with the "Ex-Twins in the Box Scores" post last year. I know, it's too early for any games at this point in the year, but I have noticed some activity in the way of signings during the off-season. This past week I read about the Texas Rangers signing Danny Santana to a minor league contract. Frankly, I had almost forgotten he was still around! I think he was with Atlanta for part oflast season.

Here's the link to ESPN's summary of Rangers transactions:

Any other ex-Twins changing teams so far this winter?

Probably the most notable is Dozier signing with the Washington Nationals for $9M.

Texas also signed Tonkin to a minor league deal. His numbers in Japan weren't good.

Chris Herman has bounced around waivers. I can't remember his most recent stop was Houston or if there's another.

Tommy Milone lives! Who wouldda thunk it? I missed that one, but I read about the Santiago signing last week .... and promptly forgot about it. Which reminds me: Is Ricky Nolasco still kicking around?

Who could forget John Ryan Murphy? He signed with the D-Backs for $900k. Let's see....who got the better end of that deal (Aaron Hicks to the Yanks for JR Murphy)? Ugh.

Let's not forget Oliver Drake, who can't get out of 40-man/DFA hell. Just moved again 10 days ago to the Rays. He'd been claimed by the Blue Jays after the Twins DFA'd him earlier in the offseason. Played for FIVE teams last year.

It doesn't matter. I don't think Hicks would have turned the corner with the Twins coaches. Do you?

 

Hicks was not good in NY right off the bat, someone worked with him to turn the corner.

 

The Twins got Moya for Murphy, and Moya has at least been average, so it's not the end of the world.

 

I'm still skeptical that Hicks's run will last. I expect he will be up and down like Carlos Gomez (who in all fairness has been mostly down in his career).
