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.
Jason Bartlett agrees to non-roster deal with the #twins. Will compete for a job in spring training.— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) November 11, 2013
Bartlett was injured and ineffective in 2012 and sat out all of this season, so at age 34 there?s no telling if he has anything left in the tank. He hasn?t topped a .700 OPS since 2009, but the Twins are always in need of middle infield help and there?s no risk to a non-roster invitation to spring training.
