The Orioles have acquired Alex Liddi. LINK
The Orioles and Mariners swapped international slot money, with the Mariners increasing their amount by $73,700.
I thought teams could just claim a...
It would be nice to see Johan try to come back as a relief pitcher for the Twins.
Even if he is unable to make it back to the majors, I would like to have him back in the Twins organization.
According to Baseball America, the Twins are $26,400 under budget for their 2013 bonus pool.

If he's available, I think the Twins should draft him.
Slightly interesting fact: Liam Hendriks is 8 months older than Aaron Hicks.

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed Todd Redmond off waivers.
If 5 is average, why did they give Sano a current power grade of 5? 28 home runs for a 19-year old in low A is above average in my opinion.
Arcia is a 4 (below average) for power and hit. .928...
Signing Contreras to a minor league deal to get to Aledmys Diaz. They can be teammates in AAA for a while.
Terry Ryan, the wooer.
From his minor league numbers, it looks like he's more of a flyball pitcher. He might enjoy Target Field.
Redmond and Scott Diamond were teammates on the 2010 Gwinnett Braves.
The Twins currently have a full 40-man roster: 22 pitchers, 8 infielders, 5 outfielders, 5 catchers.
If he is willing to sign for under $2.5 million, I think he'd be a good reliever.
I'll always root for him, as long as he's a Twin.
Dan Johnson (White Sox via Coon Rapids, MN) and Ryan Sweeney (Red Sox via Cedar Rapids, Iowa) are expected to be non-tendered.
