Ryan Doumit Signs With Twins


No official word on how long, but David thinks it's for one year and $3 million. That means the Pirates can offer him arbitration without a problem, assuming Type B's get compensation picks this year. Anyway, the Twins got very little from Drew Butera and their other catchers when Joe Mauer wasn't available, so Doumit will be a good contingency plan for them. UPDATE: Yes, it's for one year and $3 million, plus incentives.
