Twins sign Logan Morrison after 38-home run season

Olympic Committee's chief of sports performance , said the number of athletes who finished fourth through sixth is 35. Canada are third with 11 golds , while hosts South Korea are seventh.

Morrison will make $6 million in 2018, with a possible vesting option driving it to $16.5 million over two years, the report says. Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press first reported Minnesota's interest in Morrison Sunday morning, which then moved to "serious talks" (via ESPN's Jerry Crasnick) and now a reported done deal. He finished his two-year circuit with the team after slashing.246/.353/.516 with a career-best 38 home runs, .363 wOBA and 3.3 fWAR in 601 plate appearances. So he has some extra position flexibility, with solid power (.763 career OPS, 23 home runs for the Marlins in 2011). With Eddie Rosario and Max Kepler in left field and right field and Joe Mauer at first base, he's on track to be the primary designated hitter for a team that earned an AL wild-card spot last season. The burly left hander who hit 3 of his 38 homers against the Twins last summer (including a 15th inning game victor in the 15th inning on on May 28th) will be joining the Twins this spring as the likely first option at the DH spot.
