Twins reportedly meet with Bronson Arroyo’s agent

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Could the Twins be adding another starting pitcher to their rotation via free agency?

Despite already signing Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes to multi-year deals, the Twins reportedly met with right-hander Bronson Arroyo’s agent, Terry Bross, on the first day of the Winter Meetings today.

That meeting went well, according to 1500 ESPN’s Darren Wolfson, while FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweeted the talks between the Twins and Arroyo are gaining momentum.

But Arroyo confirmed to’s Mark Sheldon that no deals are close, and the Angels and Phillies are also interested in his services.

The Twins have yet to make a formal offer to Arroyo, but the situation is definitely worth monitoring. It’s still unclear if the Twins are ready to hand out another multi-year deal after spending a combined $73 million on Nolasco and Hughes, but it’s another sign the Twins aren’t done trying to fix a rotation that posted the worst ERA in the Majors last season.

I’ll have more as the day goes along here, as we’re set to meet with general manager Terry Ryan at about 5 p.m. CT.
