This is a nice run-down of the Twins offseason including FA, guaranteed contracts, trade candidates and more.

Too much to hope for that the Twins non-tender Drew Butera and he signs elsewhere, taking the possibility of using him away from Gardy?

Why do they have Morneau pegged for $15M next year? From what I understand his salary is $14M and there's no option to buy out.

The $15M includes the pro-rated signing bonus. He signed a 6yr/$80M contract with a $6M Signing Bonus. His actual salary is $14M.
