Darren Wolfson reported over the weekend
that the Twins were interested in Joe Saunders, but the veteran left-hander agreed to terms Tuesday with the Rangers. And Johan Santana, who has of course been linked throughout the offseason to his former club, chose to sign a minor-league deal with big bonuses in Baltimore.

Over the past few days, two pitchers that the Twins have been connected to at various points ended up signing with different teams.
