Twins' Miguel Sano: Signs deal to avoid arbitration

Sano agreed to a one-year, $2.65 million with the Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The deal includes a $50,000 bonus if Sano makes enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title (502), a mark he's yet to reach in his four-year career. That would require a major jump from the 299 plate appearances he received last year in a season plagued by injury and poor conditioning. He'll need to hit a lot better than the .199/.281/.398 line he posted last season if the Twins are to re-enter the playoff race.
