The Minnesota Twins have agreed to one-year deals with third baseman Trevor Plouffe, left-hander Tommy Milone, right-hander Casey Fiend and infielder Eduardo Nunez that avoided arbitration. The Twins announced the agreements on Friday. Plouffe will earn $4.8 million next season after hitting .258 with 14 home runs and a team-leading 80 RBIs last season.
The Minnesota Twins traded veteran right-hander Kevin Correia to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night for a player to be named or cash.
If the A’s are going to make the playoffs again, it will be on the strength of their pitching. A.J. Griffin will be a big part of that.
