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).

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

But then the other team would have to pay his buyout
