Twins' Byungho Park: Begins taking batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park has been taking batting practice for the first time since surgery to repair a tendon in his right middle finger and has no limitations, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "He's healthy; he's hitting," said Twins manager Paul Molitor.

Park began last year as Minnesota's starting DH after hitting 50 home runs in each of his previous two seasons while playing for Nexen of the Korean Baseball Organization. While he showed power in the majors with 12 home runs in 62 games, he struggled to make contact and hit just .191/.275/.409. He was demoted to Triple-A in July and failed to impress (hitting .224/.297/.526) before season-ending thumb surgery. Park will compete for the starting DH job or a bench spot this spring.

Twins' Ryan Pressly: Avoids arbitration with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly and the Twins avoided arbitration with a $1.175 million deal on Friday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports.

Pressly led the American league in appearances before the Twins decided to reduce his workload, so he's a valuable innings eater out of the bullpen. In total, he posted a 3.70 ERA in 75.1 innings while striking out 67. This was his first round of arbitration.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Inks $8 million deal to avoid arbitration with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago and the Twins avoided arbitration Friday with an $8 million deal, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

Santiago posted career worsts in ERA, FIP, and K/9 during 2016, but still managed to negotiate a $3 million salary increase with Minnesota. He has at least delivered innings as of late, topping 180 innings in both 2015 and 2016. The 29-year-old is entering his final season before free agency.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson agreed to a one-year, $2.9 million contract with the Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A lack of alternatives in the Twins' organization is perhaps the best thing working in Gibson's favor entering 2017. He seems secure in the rotation (at least to start the year) despite posting a 5.07 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 147.1 innings last season. Gibson was done in largely by walks (3.4 BB/9) and home runs (1.22 HR/9).

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Joins Twins as NRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez signed a minor league contract with the Twins on Thursday that includes an invite to spring training.

Gimenez played at a below-replacement level last season, slashing .216/.272/.331 while striking out in 26.5 percent of his plate appearances. He is a slight positive behind the dish and will have a chance to compete with John Ryan Murphy for the backup role behind Jason Castro, but Gimenez is 34 and has never reached even 140 at-bats in any of his eight major league seasons, so there's little reason to think he will be fantasy relevant in 2017.
