According to Rhett Bollinger, the Twins and Brian Duensing have agreed to a one year, $1.3 million contract to avoid arbitration. He is the last arbitration guy for the Twins, so again, no arbitration cases.

My opinion is that the Twins got a very good deal on this one.

I just hope they keep him out of the rotation, leave him in the bullpen where he has done well.

Agreed. We projected $1.75M in the Handbook based on his mixed history as a starter and reliever. Probably the only contract for a pitcher that we overestimated. :banghead:

So how's the old idiom go? Robbing Brian to pay Drew?
