by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki has been mentioned in trade rumors leading up to the deadline, but the team has actually been busy working to get him a contract extension, according to FOXSports.com.

Suzuki was an All-Star this season and is hitting .304/.367/.386 while working on one-year deal. According to the report, there is a "reasonable chance" the extension gets done and Suzuki is not traded.

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.
