The Twins offered arbitration to free agent reliever Dennys Reyes today, which will assure them of a supplemental-round pick in next June’s amateur draft if he signs with another team.

Reyes qualified as a Type B free agent. He has until Sunday to accept or decline the arbitration offer.

The Twins’ other three free agents — Nick Punto, Adam Everett and Eddie Guardado — did not qualify as Type A’s or B’s.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Tigers declined to offer arbitration to shortstop Edgar Renteria, a type A free agent. That could make Renteria more appealing for some teams because they won’t have to give up a first-round pick by signing him,┬ábut I haven’t heard of the Twins having interest.
