Landa (shoulder) signed a minor league contract with the Twins on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins declined to tender Landa a contract last week, but he will return to the organization for a seventh season. His invitation to spring training seems like more of a peace offering as Landa wouldn't seem to have a realistic chance to break camp with the big club, having never pitched above the High-A level. Control issues continued to plague Landa during his time with Fort Myers in 2016 (4.8 BB/9) before a shoulder injury put him on the shelf.
