Twins Sign Dickey/Braves Release Orr

The Minnesota Twins have signed the one and only R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball. Dickey would seemingly be the only knuckleballer in the league once Tim Wakefield retires, so it would make sense for the Twins to sign him. Dickey compiled a 3.72 ERA in AAA last year, so don't be surprised if he's the Twin's 4th or 5th starters come next season.

The Atlanta Braves have released second-baseman Pete Orr. Pete has a career .263/.292/.339 line, but there's gotta be a team that can hand him a utility role, something like Maicer Izturis does over in Anaheim.

Well, the sox teams each have a knuckler in their minor league systems. Redsox have Zink, and White sox have Haegar, who's been up a couple of times and is pretty highly regarded. So not sure your comment that Dickey (who's only been throwing knuckle balls for two years) would be the only knucker is quite right...
