Weekly summary of the Twins moves and targets: 12/20/2013

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.



Traded OF/DH Ryan Doumit to the Atlanta Braves for Minor League LHP Sean Gilmartin who was invited to Spring Training (12/18)


Signed RHP Yohan Pino to a Minor League contact

Signed RHP Mike Pelfrey  to a two year, $11 million contract with additional $3.5 million in incentives (12/14)

Signed OF Jason Kubel to a split contract:  The Minor League portion would be $15,000 a month.  If he makes the MLB team he will receive a base of $2M with $150K for reaching each of 300 and 350 PAs, $200K for reaching 400 PAs, $150K each for spending 30 and 60 days and $200K for spending 90 days on the 25 man roster.  Additionally he will receive $100K each for being named the World Series or the AL MVP and $25K for making the All-Star team or winning a gold glove.
