CBSsports.com's Jon Heyman tweeted that the Twins were showing interest in Jason Kubel.
While he had a monster season in 2012, Kubel is coming off a horrible season split between Arizona and Cleveland, hitting .216/.293/.317 with just five home runs and a career low OPS+ of 69 (heh, 69).
When he first signed with the Diamondbacks, just like all the other departing free agents, Kubel took his shots at Target Field:
[FONT=Arial]"It's no secret that a lot of people didn't like Target Field to hit there," he said.[/FONT][FONT=Arial]
[FONT=Arial]"I just feel like here, I can use the whole field and still put up power numbers instead of trying to pull the ball in the air to get it out.
[FONT=Arial]"I did get in trouble trying to do that too often, and it showed in the numbers."[/FONT]
As far as DH-ing, Kubel seemed also apprehensive to that at the time:
"It can get boring," said Kubel, who split time between the outfield and DH. "You make an out, you have an at-bat that you're not happy with, you've got to sit there for about 45 minutes going over that at-bat until you get a chance to do something again."
Based on the season he just had, I'm sure Kubel will play anywhere for any price.
