Twins have called Bronson Arroyo a 'couple of times'

Free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo is definitely a player the Twins have shown interest in signing this offseason.

Arroyo identified the Twins on MLB Network Radio as one of six teams that have shown interest in signing him.

"Nobody’s really put a dollar bill in front of me but I have, I think, the Phillies, the Dodgers, the Angels, the Giants, the Twins, maybe even the Orioles, I think all those teams have called, you know, just to say that they are interested," Arroyo said, via the Pioneer Press. "I’m not really sure how interested, you know? I think the Giants called back a couple of times and so did the Twins. But nobody really wants to put any money down on the table yet."

Arroyo, 37, continued by saying he feels like he's earned the right to ask for a three-year contract, while most teams only want to offer two years.

“I feel like I’ve proven myself in the game. I feel like I’ve given every team that I’ve ever played for their money’s worth," he said. "And so I really would like somebody to come further than two years and give me a three-year deal. I feel like I’ve got plenty left in the tank for that."

Arroyo finished 14-12 last season with a 3.79 ERA while pitching for the Reds. He's pitched at least 199-innings in nine straight seasons.

Meanwhile, the Twins are also reportedly "pushing hard" to sign right-hander Ricky Nolasco. We have more on that right here.
