07:37 AM ET 11.22 | The list of free-agent starting pitchers on the Twins' radar is growing. Right-hander Gavin Floyd and left-hander Chris Capuano have drawn initial interest from the Twins, according to agent Mike Moye, who represents both. Floyd, who turns 31 in January, is ahead of schedule in his rehab following Tommy John surgery on May 7. Previously a valued workhorse for the Chicago White Sox, Floyd has been long-tossing out to 180 feet and is due in New York City on Dec. 2 for a follow-up visit with Dr. David Altchek, who also repaired a torn flexor muscle near Floyd's elbow. "Gavin says he's just felt great," Moye said. "We're expecting a great doctor's report and hope to start a mound progression shortly thereafter." Barring setbacks, Floyd should be ready for the start of spring training.

The Twinkles organization have a long way to go in getting back in playoff position having to settle on rehab arms instead of pursing better pitchers in free agency.

no team SHOULD sign a T J S, pitcher,when the player surgery hasn't complete a full year of recovery

"The list of free-agent starting pitchers on the Twins' radar is growing."

And that's probably where they will stay for the Tightwad Twins.

If Floyd can pitch close to 200 innings and have an ERA at 4 or slightly under, he'd be a cheap pickup for a team looking for a fifth starter. Good luck to him.

If your career is at the end and you want some free money with no shot at pitching in the postseason, then sign with the Twins.
