ESPN: Twins Reach Deal with Kendrys Morales
(NEW YORK) -- The Minnesota Twins reached a one-year agreement with free agent Kendrys Morales, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick.
The deal is worth a prorated $12 million, according to MLB.com.
The 30-year-old Morales didn't sign with a team after declining a qualifying offer from the Seattle Mariners. He hit .277 with 23 home runs and 80 RBIs for the Mariners last season.
Morales, who played first base most of his major league career, is expected to mainly serve as the Twins' designated hitter.
Morales has played seven big league seasons hitting .280 with 102 home runs, 335 RBIs and a .333 on-base percentage.
