Twins have won the bidding war for Korean LHP Hyeon-jong Yang.

Well it doesn't look like the bidding got too out of hand here if the Twins are the ones walking away with the prize. The 26-year old lefty has a solid four-pitch arsenal with a low-to-mid 90's fastball and a slider he uses as his out-pitch. He also has a decent curveball and changeup. The Twins would love to get him signed and pitching against major league hitters as quick as possible with the hope that he will be successful and earn a spot in their rotation immediately.

3B Miguel Sanoa, P Alex Meyer and 2B Eddie Rosario were added to the Twins' 40-man roster.

The Twins made this move to protect these players from being grabbed in the Rule 5 Draft. The big name of this trio is clearly Miguel Sano, who will return to action next season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Eddie Guardado will be named the Twins bullpen coach.

Guardado spent 12 seasons with the Twins coming out of their bullpen and he is heading there again. The only difference this time around is that he is going to be a coach and not an active reliever.

Eric Farris signed a minor league deal with the Twins on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training.

Farris has a total of nine major league at-bats and eight of those at-bats came in 2012. He's going to have to play the best baseball of his life if he wants any chance of making the Twins major league roster.

Twins have re-signed minor league free agents James Beresford and B.J. Hermsen.

Beresford is a slick-fielding Triple-A middle infielder with good plate discipline but no power and only average speed. Hermsen is a right-handed Double-A reliever with no strikeout rate and, so far, below-average command. Neither figures to be anything more than organizational depth.

Source says Ricky Nolasco's updated 3-team no-trade clause is comprised entirely of "big-market teams" from the American League.

This unique 3-team no-trade clause has basically allowed Nolasco to list the three places that he least wants to play. The "big-market" teams from the American League should logically be assumed as the Yankees, Red Sox, and the Angels, as these teams have the biggest markets in the American League.

Twins prospect Alex Real has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Things just got very real for Alex Real. His 2015 season has already started off on the wrong foot and we aren't even in the year 2015. This is a huge setback for the kid.

Twins' third baseman Trevor Plouffe is progressing well following left forearm surgery five weeks ago.

Plouffe is expected to be ready for spring training, He has good power but has both a low walk and contact rate, that hurts his batting average and drops his fantasy value.

Byron Buxton underwent surgery on his broken finger Friday.

This kid really can't catch a break. He was originally diagnosed with a dislocation as a result of a dive in the Arizona Fall League, but a hand specialist discovered the fracture. The hope is that he'll be ready for spring training but with his lucky lately you should not hold your breathe. Buxton was limited to just 31 games this season due to a variety of ailments.
