Wolfson notes that if Saunders wants to join the Twins, he will be able to. Minnesota wants him, but they are only interested in extending a one-year contract at this point. They may potentially be willing to increase the offer to two-years, according to Wolfson, but it's been reported that Saunders is seeking a three-year commitment.
General manager Terry Ryan wouldn't comment specifically on Saunders, but he did confirm that he has the "payroll flexibility" to make another free agent addition. If the Twins do add another player, it is expected to be a starting pitcher.
