Brian Dozier making contract progress

We have been discussing the importance of Brian Dozier to the Minnesota Twins for much of the offseason. While guys like Jedd Gyorko and Jason Kipnis have received their paydays, Dozier is still awaiting his. Mike Berardino reported that Dozier had agreed to a new salary for the 2015 season, but that contract talks are progressing.

Looking at the future terms that Dozier could end up agreeing to, the Twins should be expecting to ink their starting second basemen to a four or five-year deal. Arguably better than both aforementioned players, any deal south of $50 million would be a fair offer to both sides. We looked into Berardino’s report in regards to the contract situation a bit further as well.

We were able to further break down our thoughts in regards to Dozier’s peers and the money he should be offered. Check it out here.
