Kurt Suzuki backed by teammates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins surprisingly productive catcher Kurt Suzuki has received interest from several teams in need of players at that position, but closer Glen Perkins is hoping he stays put and is offered a contract extension.

"That would be ideal," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I think everyone else would agree. Not even just pitchers. He's fit in the clubhouse great, too, with everybody."

General manager Terry Ryan expressed satisfaction with Suzuki despite admitting he rates poorly in regard to pitch-framing.

Toronto, San Francisco and Baltimore are believed to be most interested. All three had scouts at Twins games over the weekend.

Report: Kurt Suzuki being eyed by Cardinals, Orioles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki, who is arguably enjoying his strongest season since 2009, is getting eyed by the Cardinals and Orioles, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Cardinals starting catcher Yadier Molina and Baltimore counterpart Matt Wieters are out for the season. Suzuki has proven to be one of the premier clutch hitters among major league catchers this season. He boasts a strong stat line of .308/.367/.393 while playing quite well behind the plate.

Twins open to trading potential free agents
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Twins are open to trading DH Kendrys Morales, who signed with the team in early June, and other potential free agents, according to FOX Sports. The list includes Josh Willingham, Kevin Correia and Kurt Suzuki.

Though, the Twins might try to keep Suzuki since few contenders have a need for a catcher.

Kurt Suzuki talks don't go far
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Twins recently held exploratory contract talks with All-Star catcher Kurt Suzuki, but the talks didn't go far, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Suzuki is set to become a free agent after this season.

He's batting .305 with two homers and 38 RBI in 285 at-bats. If the last-place Twins decide to shed expiring contracts before the trade deadline, Suzuki would be a very desirable trade piece, the paper said.
