Blaine Boyer interested in returning to the Twins
Free agent reliever Blaine Boyer would welcome a return to the Twins, per Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The Royals have checked in with the right-hander as well, but it sounds like the Twins are tops on Boyer’s list of priorities.
Boyer added that his time in Minnesota was “so wonderful” and “just awesome”.
Boyer, 34, posted a career-best 2.49 ERA for the Twins this past season along with a 33/19 K/BB ratio in 65 innings. However, advanced metrics suggest that Boyer is unlikely to repeat that success going forward considering he has a tough time consistently missing bats. Boyer’s 7.8 percent swinging strike rate was the seventh-lowest among qualified relievers in 2015.
