The Minnesota Twins have agreed to terms with left-hander Brian Duensing and backup catcher Drew Butera to one-year contracts, ensuring that all of their arbitration-eligible players are signed for 2013. The Twins agreed with Duensing, who has been both a starter and reliever in his four seasons in Minnesota, on a $1.3 million deal. Duensing went 4-12 with a 5.12 ERA last season. He started eight games, but spent most of his time as a left-handed specialist out of the bullpen.

OMAHA - The Federal Reserve predicts U.S. farm income could decline in 2013, but it depends upon how long the drought continues. Roughly two-thirds of the nation has been in a severe drought since last summer. The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Mo., said Thursday that if it continues, prices of corn and other crops would remain volatile because of tight supplies. But if normal weather conditions return, crop prices would decline and lead to lower farm incomes.
