09:11 AM ET 02.02 | Although there's mutual interest from the Twins as well as free agent Johan Santana, there's no chance that the former Cy Young Award winner will be ready for spring training, or any time soon after that. Santana, 34, still recovering from the second (last spring) of two left shoulder surgeries, hasn't picked up a baseball for months. The left-hander isn't expected to begin throwing until mid-summer. A lot of teams besides the Twins are keeping tabs on Santana.

Me too, but what do I know?

Sucker has looked bad the last couple of years.

He might be ready near the trade deadline, but there is only one problem, the Twinkles will be so far out of the playoff picture by then that they will not be interested in Santana anymore.

..." two left shoulder surgeries..."

Well there ya go. Thats the problem. Put one of those left shoulders on the right side. Must have his shirts made special. Jeesh!
