Game 785 | January 27, 2012 | Jamey Carroll, Danny Valencia, Cory Provus
One of the last remaining veterans of the late Montreal Expos, Carroll, who turned 38 during the year, was signed as a free agent by the Twins before the 2012 season. He played in 132 games, splitting his time at second, shortstop and third, while batting .268 with 40 RBIs. Valencia, who appeared to have won third base with a strong second half in 20ll, struggled early, was sent to Rochester and finished the year in the Boston Red Sox organization. Provus, who most recently teamed with Bob Uecker in Milwaukee, succeeded John Gordon as the play-by-play voice of the Twins.
