The Twins are nearing a one year deal with Sidney Ponson, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Ponson, who went 4-5 with a 6.25 ERA with the Cardinals and Yankees, will either take the fifth spot in the rotation or fill in from the bullpen. The Cubs are reviewing Cliff Floyd's medical records one last time before finalizing a one year, incentive base contract. A deal is most likely to be finalized this weekend. Floyd batted .244 with 11 HR and 44 RBI. He will most likely platoon with Matt Murton in left field.
