Washburn rejects Twins’ one-year offer

Talks between the Twins and free-agent lefthander Jarrod Washburn have stalled, according to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The newspaper reported Washburn recently turned down a one-year, $5 million offer from the team.

Washburn slumped badly (7.33 ERA in seven starts) after being traded from Seattle to Detroit late last season, but a knee injury was at least partially to blame. He had knee surgery following the season.

The Brewers also have expressed interest in signing Washburn.
