Twins Strike Deal With Catcher Kurt Suzuki
The Minnesota Twins have reportedly reached an agreement with catcher Kurt Suzuki, pending a physical. Suzuki split time last season between Oakland and Washington while batting .232 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 316 at bats.
Suzuki, a Hawaii native, has played seven seasons in Major League Baseball. During his career, Suzuki has a .253 average and an on base percentage of just .309. Suzuki allowed the most base-stealers in 2011.
Suzuki is expected to platoon with returning Twins catcher Josmil Pinto following Joe Mauer's move to first base in 2014.
