With star Joe Mauer moving from catcher, Minneosta likes the idea of returning Pierzynski to his roots. It is believed they'd like to do it on a one-year basis.
Pierzynski played in Texas last year after signing for $7.5 million and one year. But long before that, he was the Twins' catcher.
The Twins have a deal with infielder Jason Bartlett, who -- like Piuerzynski -- once was a Twin.
