It appears that pretty soon Carl Pavano won’t be the best free-agent pitcher on the market. The Minneapolis Star Tribune has it that Pavano and his former employer, the Minnesota Twins, are closing in on a two-year deal.
The paper reports that Pavano was thought to be looking for three years from his next team. The Star Tribune points out that Pavano "may have been able to find it from a non-contender, but he chose to stay with [the] 2010 American League Central champion Twins instead and will look to get back to the playoffs this year."
The Connecticut native, who won a World Series with the Florida Marlins in 2004, turns 35 Saturday. He went 17-11 last year with a 3.75 ERA.
