Thome returns to Twins

Jim Thome is staying with the Twins.

Thome, who hit 25 home runs last year and was key in the Twins' run to the American League Central title, today agreed to a one-year deal to return to the team. MLB.com reported that Thome will make a guaranteed $3 million.

The Rangers were also very interested in Thome, but they knew that his preference was to go back to the Twins. It's possible that the Rangers could now pursue some of the other DH candidates who remain on the free-agent market (Vladimir Guerrero, for example), but that's not at all certain.

Thome, who has 589 career home runs, ended up with 340 at-bats for the Twins in 2010, in large part because Justin Morneau missed most of the second half of the season with a concussion. With Morneau expected to be healthy to begin 2011, the plan will be for Thome to get a lot fewer at-bats this year -- but that's probably best, since Thome is now 40 years old.

The Twins are still working to re-sign pitcher Carl Pavano, as well, and they've been considered the strong favorites for him, too.
