The Minnesota Twins on Friday added needed infield help as they acquired shortstop Kyle Farmer from the Cincinnati Reds, Ken Rosenthal and Dan Hayes report. The trade is pending a review of medical records, and it's not yet certain what the Reds will receive in return.
As for Farmer, 32, he's coming off a 2022 season in which he slashed .255/.315/.386 (90) with 14 home runs in 145 games. That 14-homer season came after a 16-home run campaign in 2021. For his career, Farmer has an OPS+ of 85 across parts of six major-league seasons. He is second-year arbitration-eligible this offseason, and last year Farmer had a salary of $3.155 million. Farmer also has experience at second base and third base, so he could also fill a utility role for Minnesota next season.
