Twins signed Wil Ledezma to a minor league deal.

The 33-year-old has a career 5.40 ERA... No thanks, nothing to see here.

Byron Buxton is among the invites to Twins spring training.

You're darn right, he gets an invite to spring training. He would have been up last year had injuries not derailed his entire season, ultimately ending with a broken finger during the Arizona Fall League. He's supposed to have it all -- power, speed, plate discipline -- everything you could ask for in a potential five-tool threat. He'll be a ridiculously hot commodity in draft should he earn a starting job out of spring training.

Twins designated Chris Parmelee for assignment.

He became expendable as a result of the team signing Ervin Santana and needing a spot on the 40 man roster. He is likely to sign with another club as a bench player who can play all three outfield positions and first base.

Ervin Santana signed a four-year deal for around $54 million with Minnesota.

At some point the skeptics have to accept the fact that two-straight years with a sub-4.00 ERA is going to land a guy like Santana some big money. But keep in mind that he started off real hot last year for the Braves but did not have a particularly strong middle or finish. The spike in strikeouts can be attributed to the move to the NL, which means his K/9 is likely to drop down below 7.00 again. Target Field dimensions should help keep the ratios from being overblown, but there's just never a high comfort factor when it comes to owning him.

Ervin Santana has agreed to a deal with the Twins.

It was thought that Santana had agreed by conflicting reports have come out saying that nothing is official. Santana went 14-10 with a 3.95 ERA last season for the Braves.

The Twins plan to give Mike Pelfrey every opportunity to start this season.

This is probably a mistake given how poorly Pelfrey has pitched in recent seasons, but the Twins may be attributing his failures to his injuries and are looking to give him another shot. If he does make the Twins' rotation, he's someone to steer clear of in fantasy leagues.

Twins Manager Paul Molitor said that Danny Santana will come into Spring Training as a shortstop.

He played more than twice as many games in the outfield in 2014, with 69 games in centerfield as opposed to 34 at short. With the Twins signing Torii Hunter, the outfield is getting more crowded, and shortstop is where Santana can do the most good for the club.

Twins have yet to discuss a multiyear contract with Trevor Plouffe up to Tuesday?s tender deadline.

Plouffe is eligible for arbitration, and that is likely how he will be paid this off season. It's doubtful that the Twins will discuss a multi-year contract with him just yet, especially due to the fact that he suffered a broken forearm at the end of the year.

Twins have signed OF Shane Robinson to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

Robinson was the Cardinals reserve outfielder last season, a job he had spent a couple of years doing in the big leagues. But his upside was limited and the team was flush with outfielders. He may not fare any better with the Twins, though given their outfield struggles in recent years, he could see some added opportunities.

Torii Hunter has officially signed a 1-year, $10.5 million deal to return to the Twins.

The original reports were that Hunter wanted to sign with a contender but ended up heading back to where it all began for him in Minnesota. The move is interesting from the Twins perspective in that they are not even close to a playoff-ready team but you have to think that Hunter will be a mentor to the young players around him.
