  • Jonathan Schoop

Contract: Schoop made $8.5 million last season and signed a one-year deal for $7.5 million with the Twins, with incentives. The deal for Torreyes, a career.281/.310/.375 hitter in 614 major-league plate appearances, is a split contract that could pay him $800,000 if he earns a spot on the big-league roster.

The campaign was a drop in production from his 2017 All-Star season with the Orioles when Schoop established career bests of a.293 average with 32 homers and 105 RBIs.

Schoop was non-tendered by the Brewers after the season. Nick Gordon, the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft, struggled at Triple-A past year but could be ready for his debut soon.

He said it would be "fantastic" if he could enjoy similar success but the first target was to pull away from the relegation zone. Hasenhuttl revealed there was no contact from Arsenal in the summer after Arsene Wenger's departure, contrary to reports.

In addition to Schoop, the Twins have solidified their infield even more by signing former Yankees utility player Ronald Torreyes, who hit.292 in 2017 and.280 in 2018.

Torreyes, 26, can play second base, third base and shortstop, but he hasn't done much offensively in parts of 4 seasons in the big leagues. First baseman Joe Mauer retired last month, after second baseman Brian Dozier and shortstop/third baseman Eduardo Escobar were traded at the non-waiver deadline last summer.
