The Cardinals, at least for now, are showing no interest in Red Sox starter Jake Peavy.
The Cardinals know that they are one good starter away from being a championship caliber team and they will do everything in their power to get to the next level. They certainly have to ammo in their farm system to make a move for a top pitcher, but that clearly isn't what Peavy is at this point in his career. Although the Cardinals coaching staff has been known for saving careers of washed up pitchers, adding Peavy would be more of a last resort at this point. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
