08:17 AM ET 11.25 | Publicly, at least, the Twins are saying they still hope to re-sign Johan Santana. Privately, according to at least one official from another major league team, the Twins have given indication they will trade Santana before the start of spring training, perhaps as soon as the winter meetings that will take place next month in Nashville. Santana is signed through only next season at a salary of $13.25 million. Any team that acquires him will do so knowing he will require a contract bigger than the one offered Barry Zito last offseason (seven years, $126 million). Some estimates place a Santana contract in the vicinity of $20-25 million annually for seven or eight years.
