The Twins signed right-handed starting pitchers Sam Deduno and Esmerling Vasquez to minor league contracts.  The 29-year old Deduno was 6-5 with a 4.44 ERA for the Twins in 2012. The 28-year old Vasquez was 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA for the Twins in 2012.  Both players are expected to compete for a starting spot in the Twins rotation this spring.

The Twins are one of 3 teams that are reportedly interested in trading for starting pitcher James Shields from Tampa Bay.  The 30-year old Shields had the option on his contract picked up by the Rays last month.  Shields was 15-10 with a 3.52 ERA in 227 2/3 innings pitching for the Rays in 2012.  The Dodgers are reportedly one of the other team pursuing Shields.
