Twins sign slugger Thome to $1.5 mil deal
From The Sports Network.com
MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins have agreed to a one- year contract with veteran slugger Jim Thome.
The deal, which is pending a physical, is worth $1.5 million with up to $750,000 in incentives.
Thome will likely fill a bench role, as Jason Kubel, also a left-handed hitter, was primarily a designated hitter last season.
