Twins Ink Jason Bartlett

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Jason Bartlett has agreed to a minor-league deal with Minnesota, where he started at shortstop from 2005-2007 before being traded to Tampa Bay in the Delmon Young-Matt Garza swap.

Bartlett was injured and ineffective in 2012 and sat out all of this season, so at age 34 theres no telling if he has anything left in the tank. He hasnt topped a .700 OPS since 2009, but the Twins are always in need of middle infield help and theres no risk to a non-roster invitation to spring training.
