Twins Avoid Arbitration, Reach Agreement With Brian Duensing


Who said that Twins Fest is all about fun and games? Obviously even though Target Field is filled with fans looking to meet their favorite Twins players, there is still plenty of business going on. For Brian Duensing, it appears a nice fan oriented weekend is all the left-handed reliever needed to reach an agreement with the Twins.

It was announced that both sides have reached an agreement, and confirmation via Twitter was provided by Twins Daily’s own Seth Stohs.

With the Twins having agreed to a deal with Jordan Schafer yesterday, only Duensing remained for the Twins to lock down. MLB Trade Rumors projected Brian Duensing at $2.5 million, so the lone left out of the Twins pen did good for himself. Also, in coming to an agreement with Duensing prior to the February 1st cut off date, the Twins once again avoid an arbitration hearing.

The last time Minnesota was forced to go to arbitration, it was dealing with a Scott Boras client but the name of Kyle Lohse.

As the Twins have now wrapped up the entirety of the arbitration eligible players, as well as signed a slew of free agents, look for the club to turn the focus towards Fort Myers and Spring Training. terry Ryan mentioned as recently as today that the club is continuing to monitor Johan Santana, who now may pitch again this week. It is looking like although the Twins have eyes on him, that he will more than likely sign elsewhere.

Enjoy the rest of Twins Fest my fellow Territorians, shouldn’t be anything else to see on the transaction front this weekend.
