The Twins nike air max 90 essential mujer baratas , who own the worst ERA in the American League, will work hard to improve their pitching staff for 2013.
They will have to make a decision on Scott Baker, who underwent Tommy John surgery on April 17.
Baker is currently in the final year of a four-year, $15.25 million deal that pays him $6.5 million this season. The Twins have a $9.25 million team option for next season and it seems unlikely they'll pick it up. Doing so would make him the team's highest-paid pitcher in 2013.
The Twins do have interest in bringing Baker back, but they'd likely need to monitor his progress this offseason before offering him a reduced contract.

Strasburg's former college teammate, Addison Reed nike air max 90 rojos , has decided to quit as well. The pair played for Gwynn at San Diego State.

Bottom line is, I want to be around for my family. This is something that can affect people the rest of your life. [Chewing tobacco is] so prevalent in this game. It's something we all kind of grew up doing."
Strasburg said he picked up the habit long before arriving at San Diego State, and also admitted he didn't know Gwynn had used smokeless tobacco during his playing days.

Scioscia, who has five years and $27 million left on his contract, and Dipoto, who has one year left on his contract, both were told they would be retained next season following the meetings.
