Twins OF Torii Hunter won't retire if he has good 2015 season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Twins outfielder Torii Hunter will turn 40 this July, making it natural to question when he'll decide to retire. 

Hunter has an answer for that. If he has another good season, his career will continue. Appearing on MLB Network Radio, Hunter was asked if he has any plans to call it quits after this year. 

"I just can't announce before a season and say hey, I'm going to retire," Hunter said. "But if I hit .300, I'm playing again."

In the past three seasons, Hunter has hit at least .286 while going over .300 twice. In 2014, he hit .286 and recorded 17 home runs and 83 RBI. 

"If I go out and hit .280-plus and put up 17 home runs like I've been doing the past couple of years and do 80 RBIs or more then I'm coming back."

Twins OF Torii Hunter plans to mentor Aaron Hicks, Byron Buxton
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins veteran right fielder Torii Hunter said one of his goals this season will be to mentor outfielder Aaron Hicks and top outfield prospect Byron Buxton, per MLB.com.

"I know Hicks can play, but with Buxton -- I haven't seen video or seen him play, but every word I hear is good about him," Hunter said. "I definitely think when we get to spring training we'll sit down and I'll work out with them and evaluate what they're doing right and what they're doing wrong."

Hicks said he will lean on Hunter this spring, as he competes with Jordan Schafer for the starting job in center field.

"I'll be all in his ear the whole time," Hicks said. "He might get annoyed I'll be in his ear so much. He's definitely a guy I'm going to go to.

"I believe that I have the ability to play center field here for a long time. I've just got to go out there and show people that I can be the center fielder that everybody wants me to be and also that I want myself to be."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Veteran outfielder Torii Hunter said Wednesday he will continue to keep playing beyond 2015, if he feels he can still do it at the end of the season. However, he said he won't play for anyone else but the Twins.

Hunter officially signed his one-year, $10.5 million contract with the Twins on Wednesday. He returns to Minnesota after making his MLB debut in 1997 with the Twins. He spent the first 11 seasons of his 18-year career with Minnesota before playing five seasons with the Angels and the last two with the Tigers.
