The Twins recently contacted Matt Sosnick, the agent for Ryan Doumit and Josh Willingham, expressing interest in both players, according to people familiar with the discussion.

Sosnick and Paul Cobbe also represent Hisashi Iwakuma, a free agent pitcher from Japan who interests the Twins.

In Doumit and Willingham's case, no offers have been made, but they are among the free agents on the list the Twins are considering this offseason.

Willingham is a corner outfield option for the Twins if they don't re-sign Michael Cuddyer or Jason Kubel.
