Twins Rumors: Carl Pavano ‘Not a Fit’ for Minnesota

The Minnesota Twins have been targeting starting pitching since the offseason began, and there was initially some thought that there could be a reunion with right-hander Carl Pavano.

Pavano is still currently a free agent and doesn't appear to be a fit with the Twins. He pitched only 63 innings last season before ultimately being shut down with what was later diagnosed as a bone bruise on his right humerus bone.

So far this offseason the Twins have acquired pitchers Vance Worley, Trevor May, Alex Meyer, Kevin Correia and Mike Pelfrey. Following the moves, the team currently has a projected starting four of Scott Diamond, Worley, Pelfrey and Correia.

While Minnesota could elect to continue shopping the market to find a No. 5 starter, it could also decide to fill the void from within, according to Bollinger.
