The Minnesota Twins have been a sneaky team this offseason, not grabbing too many headlines but making some key additions.
The expectation was that they were going to lose star shortstop Carlos Correa in free agency.
Two failed physicals later, he was back with the Twins.
They also acquired Pablo Lopez from the Miami Marlins and added Christian Vazquez and Joey Gallo.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that fans are satisfied just yet.
There are plenty of solid left-handed relievers that are still on the market, including veteran Andrew Chafin.
On Twitter, a Twins fan posed the question of whether or not the team could land the veteran lefty.

Chafin appeared in 64 games with the Detroit Tigers in 2022.
In those appearances, the 32-year-old compiled a 2-3 record and an ERA of 2.83.
In this fan’s mind, the Twins signing Chafin would give the team a “solid A grade” for this offseason.
He would be a solid addition for any team looking for a left-handed reliever.
Other options include Matt Moore, Brad Hand, and Zack Britton.
Chafin might just be the best option on the table, and it would give the Twins some much-needed help in the bullpen, especially from the left side.
The Twins do have Emilio Pagan and Jorge Lopez at the back end of their bullpen, but adding an experienced arm such as Chafin certainly wouldn’t hurt them and could help make them the clear favorite to come out on top in the American League Central this year.
We’ll see if the Twins make a move for him.NEXT: Twins Insider Discusses Team's Latest Moves
