kubel deal is minor-league deal says @DarrenWolfson. twins are at 40 on 40 man. good chance to make team, wanted to return— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 13, 2013
Heyman reports there's a 'good chance' Kubel makes the team, but that might be overstating it. He'll certainly get a chance with this collection of outfield/first base/DH bats, but his 2013 production was horrendous.
The Twins announced that he has an invitation to spring training.
