Matt Capps: Twins Decline To Pick Up 2013 Option Staff

Update: Minnesota has declined a $6 million option in Capps' contract for 2013.

Recommendation: The Twins will pay a $250,000 buyout instead. It's possible Capps could re-sign with the Twins for a lower salary, but Minnesota should be ready to part ways after Capps struggled this past season with shoulder issues and with Glen Perkins set to take over at closer.
