Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joins me on WJON weekday mornings at 7:15 a.m. Today we talked about the remaining free agent baseball players and when they might sign, the next 5 games for the Timberwolves, Minnesota Wild roster moves and if Brady and Belichick will retire.
The Twins added some first baseman/DH depth by claiming C.J. Cron after he was designated for assistant by the Tampa Bay Rays last week. The 28-year old Cron batted .253 with 30 home runs and 74 RBIs playing first base and designated hitter for the Rays in 2018.
The Twins lost 8-1 at Cleveland Monday night to fall 14 games back of Cleveland for first in the American League Central. Cleveland scored 2 runs in the 3rd inning, 1 in the 4th and 4 in the 6th inning. Minnesota scored their lone run on a solo home run from Jake Cave in the 9th inning.
