Mystery solved: Free agent Kendrys Morales reaches deal with Twins
The addition of free agent Kendrys Morales should enhance Minnesota's lineup in a tight division.
Terms aren't known.
Morales had a rough free agency because a draft pick had been attached to his signing until this week's draft. The Twins won't have to surrender a pick due to the timing of the signing. Morales also will be an unencumbered free agent after the year since he won't have played a full year for the Twins.
Minnesota is aiming to beef up its production as it looks to make a run in the tight AL Central division. Morales could provide an upgrade in offensive production out of the first base/DH positions, where the combined OPS for the team is .740.
Morales, who has had had success in Minnesota, has 23 home runs, 80 RBI and a .277 batting average for the Mariners last year.
