"They're interested, or perhaps even very interested," Myers’ agent Craig Landis said. "And that's about as far as we are right now."
While he pitched as a late-inning reliever last season, Myers has said that he’d like to enter 2013 as a starter. Twins insiders believe he will be one of their primary targets because of his reasonable asking price and the fact that he would probably embrace the chance to become a rotation leader.
Minnesota will have to get creative in order to fill its rotation next year, as they entered the offseason with one starter, left-hander Scott Diamond, penciled in for 2013.
Myers, 32, started 33 and 34 games for the Houston Astros in 2010-11. He owns a career ERA of 4.20 over 11 seasons in the majors spanning 377 appearances, including 249 starts.
