I’ve been confused about why the Twins haven’t snatched up one of the many low-cost veteran relievers who’ve signed recently and of the remaining options Todd Coffey would seemingly be a good fit, but Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com in Minnesota reports that they aren’t even in the mix for him.
According to Wolfson the Cubs and A’s are showing the most interest in Coffey, who made $1.35 million from the Nationals last season while throwing 60 innings with a 3.62 ERA and 46/20 K/BB ratio.
At this point in the offseason one-year deals worth $1 million seem to be the going rate for decent veteran setup men, and Coffey fits into the group that includes Brad Lidge, Chad Qualls, and Dan Wheeler.
