Breaking: Minnesota Twins Reached Contract Extension With Another Top Experienced Star

MLB Rumors: Twins and Carlos Santana Reach a 1-Year, $5.25M Agreement

First baseman Carlos Santana is reportedly being signed by the Minnesota Twins as a free agent, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

Heyman added that the $5.25 million one-year contract was worth.

Santana has spent the last two years with four different teams. Midway through the 2022 season, he was traded to the Seattle Mariners from the Kansas City Royals. Prior to the 2023 season, he signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but before the season was out, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers.

For the 2024 season, the former All-Star is now joining a new squad.

Santana has shown that he is still a useful asset to a club that needs a spark in the lineup, even though he is far gone from his All-Star and Silver Slugger season. He had 132 hits, 23 home runs, and 86 RBIs in the previous season while hitting at a.240 clip. Santana will be suiting up for his former division foe after spending the majority of his career with the Cleveland Guardians.

The Twins finished with an 87-75 record, making it to the ALDS before losing to the Houston Astros in four games.

Earlier this week, Minnesota traded Jorge Polanco to free up cap space for future additions to the roster. In order to help the club that struck out the most in the 2023 season, the Twins may attempt to add some more hitters before the conclusion of the summer. Bringing in Santana helps them make up for some of the offensive performance they lost when they dealt for Polanco.
