Twins say goodbye to Perkins 19 Oct 17

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will decline their $6.5 million option on his contract for 2018 and pay him a $700,000 buyout. The 34-year-old three-time All-Star could retire. He has pitched in only 10 games over the last two seasons because of shoulder trouble.
