"He has no intention of retiring," Pat Rooney said.
At the end of the season, the 40-year old Thome said he'd talk to his family about playing again, and now it appears he will.
Thome hit 25 home runs for the Twins in 2010 and moved to eighth on the all-time home run list with 589.
Rooney said he's talked to the Twins and "other teams are in the mix."
Thome signed a one-year deal with the Twins before last season that paid him $1.5 million and then another $200,000 in incentives.
"Right now, he feels great," Rooney said. "He's been working out, he's in great shape, he's ready to go."
The Twins seem to be the perfect fit for Thome, but perhaps he could go to Oakland, a team that lost out on Adam Dunn. Thome would appear to be best-suited to playing in the American League, where he can DH. He last played in the field in 2007, but that was for just one game. He hasn't played in the field more than he's DH'd since he was in the National League with Philadelphia in 2005.
