Twins sign backup infielder Ronald Torreyes

Postado Dezembro 08, 2018

The Twins also signed infielder Ronald Torreyes to a one-year contact.

Though he's coming off a down season in which he hit a combined.233/.266/.416, Schoop, 27, has blasted 110 home runs in his career, including 78 over the past three seasons. Schoop made $8.5 million in 2018. He had been the team's starting second baseman the past five years, averaging 30 homers and 82 RBIs in that span.

"Look, it was a bad deal, and that's on me, " Brewers general manager David Stearns said after Schoop was let go.

Torreyes, 26, can play second base, shortstop and third base.

Cleveland intends to trade at least one of its front line starters, but now that Carrasco is under this team-friendly deal for several years, it'll nearly certainly be Trevor Bauer or Corey Kluber on the block. He became a free agent when the Brewers decided not to tender him a contract. Now he's inked a 1-year deal in Minnesota. He is a lifetime.281 hitter with four home runs and 56 RBIs in 229 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2015) and Yankees (2016-18).
