Minnesota Twins Sign Delmon Young, Pitchers and Catchers Report to Ft. Myers

The Minnesota Twins avoided arbitration by coming to an agreement with Delmon Young for a one-year, $5.375 million contract.

Young batted .298 with 46 doubles, one triple, 21 home runs and 112 RBIs in 153 games played for the Minnesota Twins in 2010. Young led the Twins in hits, doubles and RBIs. With 46 doubles last season, he tied for second-highest single-season total in Twins history.

The Minnesota Twins went through their first workout today at the team's spring training complex in Fort Myers, Florida. Joe Mauer worked with several pitchers including Joe Nathan, Kevin Slowey, and Anthony Slama during their first day.

Joe Nathan looked good throwing from the mound. Pitching coach Rick Anderson commented that he has never seen Nathan in such a relaxing and loose form.
