The Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization have shown interest in Twins lefty Andrew Albers, but the two sides have yet to come to an agreement, MLBTR has learned. While a deal is possible, it's a ways off, if it comes to fruition at all.
I think it will be great if it works out, same with the failed Colabello deal.

When they signed him out of the Can-Am League, they could never have imagined how much they would be able to get out of and now probably get for him!

And sounds like Albers would get somewhat more than the ML minimum (even if he made the team) so financially a win-win for him and the Twins ... especially if he felt like his chances of making the big league club were minimal.

Who saw this coming?
How many lefties do we have now- 1?
Great balance- way to go.
Are you referring to Kris Johnson?
Why does he get the benefit of the doubt?
I'll take a staff with talent over one with balance any day.
I'm sure the Tigers wish they had more lefties....
Mr. Albers had his 15 minutes of fame, if he was realistically part of the plan in 2014, the Twins were in deeper than any of us could have imagined.

Is this move of a soft-tossing lefty who occupies a spot on the 40-man linked to the acquisition of another (presumably) soft-tossing lefty that you hinted at in another thread?
First, I don't know anything about Johan (I assume that's who you mean) and his plan, but...
Second, I can't imagine him getting more than a minor league contract, so that wouldn't require a 40 man move.
