Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com is “hearing something’s going down between the Twins and Blue Jays, probably for bullpen help.”
He adds that a deal is “not done” but “could be quickly” and speculates that the Twins are most likely targeting Jason Frasor or perhaps Scott Downs.
Minnesota was linked to Frasor during the offseason, which along with Toronto’s reported high asking price for Downs seemingly makes Frasor the much more plausible acquisition for the Twins. Both relievers are impending free agents.
