Twins' Carlos Quentin: Signs minor league deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlos Quentin signed a minor league deal with the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Quentin spent brief stints with the Mariners and Braves organizations early last season before announcing his retirement in May, but he'll return to the game in hopes of cracking the Twins Opening Day roster as a DH option off the bench. The 33-year-old hit just .177 in his last taste of Major League action back in 2014, but he slashed .275/.363/.493 for the Padres just three seasons ago. Quentin is somewhat of a longshot to make the 25-man roster, and he'd likely return to retirement rather than toil in Triple-A, should he fail to make the cut.

Twins' Miguel Sano: On board with move to outfield
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Minnesota intends for Sano to begin the season as the starting right fielder, GM Terry Ryan told MLB.com. "He's bought in," Ryan said. "But we've certainly asked that question. You have to be on board with it and he's on board."

Sano has been working on his outfield defense in his native Dominican Republic, and the Twins say they'll bring Torii Hunter in as a special assistant in spring training to help him learn the new position. It may have looked like a ploy to increase Trevor Plouffe's trade value early in the offseason, but Sano's move to the outfield looks set to happen with the Twins recently agreeing to a one-year, $7.25 million deal with Plouffe. Of course, Sano will still have to demonstrate he can play the outfield in spring training and not be a major liability on defense.

Twins' Glen Perkins: No lingering neck or back issues
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Perkins has no lingering back or neck issues following rehab workouts with a core specialist, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

This is a good sign for the Twins' closer as spring training nears. The 32-year-old had been dealing with these injuries since mid-August and they were likely the driving force behind his ridiculous 7.20 ERA over the last 12 games of the 2015 season.

Twins' Danny Santana: Moving back to the outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danny Santana will move to the outfield for the 2016 season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Santana struggled heavily as the Minnesota Twins ' 2015 Opening Day shortstop after an excellent rookie season in 2014, where his time was split between center field and shortstop. By most accounts, his fielding at short was a mess and his OPS nosedived from .824 in 2014 to .532 in 2015. With Eduardo Escobar now starting at short, it makes sense for Santana to move back to the outfield, though Byron Buxton now occupies center field. The 25-year-old Santana is out of options, so he will need to find a regular role with the Twins soon or face the possibility of a new team.

Twins' Logan Darnell: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Logan Darnell was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday but he will be invited to major league spring training, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Darnell cleared waivers Thursday after being designated for assignment last week and he will now be sent to the Minnesota Twins ' Triple-A affiliate. He struggled at the major league level last season, working a 7.12 ERA across 24.0 innings, but he had strong numbers at Rochester. In fact, general manager Terry Ryan named him as a possible candidate for a back of the rotation spot on Thursday, according to Berardino.
