(MINNEAPOLIS) — Free agent outfielder Josh Willingham has agreed to a three-year deal with the Minnesota Twins worth $21 million.
The 32-year-old Willingham spent last season with the Oakland Athletics, where he batted .246 with 29 home runs and 98 RBI’s in 136 games.
The Twins will look to the power-hitting righty to diversify a lineup that is left-handed heavy with Denard Span, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau.
Willingham was originally drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 17th round of the 2000 MLB Draft.
