Twins Rumors: Brandon McCarthy, Anibal Sanchez, Ryan Dempster

So far this offseason the Minnesota Twins have reached out to several free agent starting pitchers, including Brandon McCarthy, Anibal Sanchez, Joe Blanton, Ryan Dempster, Brett Myers, Brandon Webb and Scott Baker, reports Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.

More realistic targets are free agent pitchers Joe Blanton and Ryan Dempster, whom the Twins have contacted, or another free agent pitcher, Brett Myers.

The Twins enter the season with only one starting pitcher, left-hander Scott Diamond, penciled into their 2013 rotation. For this reason they were expected to pursue multiple arms this winter through free agency and trade.

Minnesota isn’t known as a team that will spend big via free agency, and someone close to Sanchez, who’s reportedly seeking a $90 million contract, wasn’t sure that the Twins would pay what it takes to acquire top talent.

This would appear to have them in running for second-tier starters such as Blanton, Dempster, Myers and Baker. The Twins may also look to bargains or pitchers coming off injuries, such as Webb, in order to fill out their rotation.
