Twins Interested In Guardado

By Tim Dierkes [August 22, 2008 at 1:29pm CST]

Everyday Eddie Guardado, a Twins mainstay for a decade, has apparently been placed on waivers by the Rangers. Joe Christensen says the Twins are interested and will probably make a claim, but don't expect to make a deal. He says the Twins were eyeing Guardado in July but wouldn't meet the Rangers' price.

Guardado is currently closing for the Rangers, getting it done with a 3.21 ERA. A deeper look at his numbers indicates rougher waters ahead, but he's certainly a useful reliever. As far as I can tell, Guardado only has about $680K left on his contract this year. I'd imagine several teams will put in a claim, but I would've said the same for David Weathers.

I loved his attitude on the mound, but I'm not sure how much he's got left in the tank. I'd rather see the Reds look at some younger alternatives in the pen.

Mets have needs, Krivsky is there.
