Several Twins players have avoided arbitration today by signing one year deals.
According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune the Twins have signed J.J. Hardy for $5.1 million. Delmon Young signed for $2.6 million, with $50,000 in performance incentives. Carl Pavano has signed for $7 million.
In my opinion the Young and Hardy deals are fairly priced deals. I think, given Pavano’s injury history, he should have been given a performance incentive-laden deal.
Christensen hears that all of the Twins arbitration eligibles have signed and looking to confirm it.
