  • Soriano reportedly claimed by Twins

    No deal expected to be made though. Just a block.

    The Minnesota Twins have claimed second baseman Alfonso Soriano off waivers, according to a report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
    The report states the Twins claimed Soriano to block a trade to another team and the clubs do not expect to make a deal.

    Last month, the Rangers and the Twins talked about Soriano before the July 31 trade deadline but could not come to an agreement because the Rangers reportedly wanted highly touted Minor League pitcher Francisco Liriano and the Twins were not willing to part with him.

    The Rangers and the Twins have 48 hours to work out a deal. Should the clubs not come to an agreement by Monday, the Rangers can pull him back or let him go to the Twins. If he is pulled back, Soriano cannot be traded for the rest of the season.

    Soriano entered play Sunday hitting .282 with 30 home runs and 84 RBIs.

    In light of Grudzielanek's knee injury, Did Walt make a play, only to get blocked?

    Nah.

      Yeah, they talked about this on the radio down here quite a bit.

      Although not everyone is convinced it's just a block.

        Might the Twins give up their star prospect?

            Heck yeah. Ton of perennial 35/35 guys out there. They are a dime a dozen. Besides, they've got Brent Abernathy now.

              Speculation is moot.


              The Cardinals can't trade for him. Only the Twins can.
