Weekly summary of the Twins moves and targets: 11/29/2013

Here is the summary of the moves the Minnesota Twins did and the players they expressed interest in this week (the links will take you to reports).  As far as "targets" go, I am listing players that the Twins reportedly expressed interest in and not players who baseball writers and other thought that they would be a good fit or may fill a need.  The targets identified past weeks are still in the list unless they signed elsewhere.

As a reminder, you can see all the Twins' weekly transactions and targets in reverse chronological order here.


Singed FA RHP Rickey Nolasco to a 4 year, 48 million contract with a $13 million team option for a 5th year ($1M buyout) which vests and turns into a player option depending on innings pitched (have to be 400 or more cumulative) in the last 2 years of contract - pending physical (11/27)

Released IF Andy Leer 11/23
Released 1B Rory Rhodes 11/23
Released Kelvin Ortiz 11/23
Released Rick Schwarz 11/23

The current Twins' 40-man roster is here and contains 19 pitchers and 20 position players for a total of 39 spots; this does not include Ricky Nolasco, because his signing is not yet official

Free Agent:
SS Erisbel Arruebarruena (Cuban defector)
LHP Johan Santana, and RHPs Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez moved out based on this report.
