Twins Welcome Back Fan Favorite
In the dead of the winter, the Twins gave fans a Christmas present a couple of weeks early. December 2 saw the club come to agreement on a one-year, $10.5 million deal with Torii Hunter. The deal included a full no trade clause, as well as the notion that Torii would provide leadership to the youth in the organization. His bat is something the Twins still could use, even while his defense has significantly faded. He was introduced officially later in the week.
