Jair Jurrjens could be a low-cost, bounce-back option for the Twins.
Chicago White Sox: RP Francisco Rodriguez
The Chicago White Sox made a move to add Brett Myers at the deadline last season, and with him gone in free agency, the team could look to add replacement for him opposite Matt Thornton in the setup role.
Matt Lindstrom was signed to a one-year deal, but they could still opt to add another arm to a relatively young bullpen. Francisco Rodriguez had a tough year for the Milwaukee Brewers, but could be a terrific bargain if he can bounce back.
Cleveland Indians: 1B/DH Jim Thome
According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, the Cleveland Indians are looking to add one more bat this offseason and are eyeing some ex-players to fill the void.
Even at 41 years old, Jim Thome managed to hit eight home runs in 163 at-bats last season playing for the Philadelphia Phillies and Orioles. He hit .296 BA, 3 HR, 10 RBI in 22 games after rejoining the Indians at the deadline in 2011, and bringing him back again could be a solid option.
Detroit Tigers: IF Ronny Cedeno
The Detroit Tigers are set to enter the season with Ramon Santiago as their utility infielder, but the 33-year-old veteran hit just .206 with a .555 OPS last season for a -0.8 WAR.
Ronny Cedeno hit .259 with a .741 OPS last season, is a solid defensive option at second base or shortstop and is even capable of playing third base. He signed a one-year, $1.2 million deal last season and should be able to be had for a similar price.
Kansas City Royals: 2B Kelly Johnson
The Kansas City Royals addressed their biggest area of need, their starting rotation, with a handful of moves this offseason. As a result, they look like a team with an outside shot at contention, but they still have holes.
One hole is at second base, where the expected platoon of Chris Getz and Johnny Giavotella will likely be a major hole in the lineup. Kelly Johnson doesn't hit for much average, but he has some of the best power at the position and plays solid defense.
Minnesota Twins: SP Jair Jurrjens
The Minnesota Twins have worked to improve their pitching staff this offseason, adding Vance Worley, Kevin Correia, Mike Pelfrey and Rich Harden.
Taking a flier on Jair Jurrjens, who was non-tendered by the Braves, could be another low-risk option for the team. Still only 26 years old, Jurrjens was an All-Star as recently as 2011 and is as good a bounce-back candidate as anyone entering the season.
