Twins Sign Delmon Young To One-Year Deal

Thursday, February 17th, 2011 at 7:14 am

Outfielder Delmon Young and the Minnesota Twins avoided salary arbitration by agreeing Wednesday to a one-year contract worth $5,375,000.

The deal was just below the midpoint of the $6.25 million Young had asked for and the $4.65 million the Twins had offered when players and teams exchanged proposed arbitration figures last month.

Young hit .298 last year with 46 doubles, 21 homers and 112 RBIs, and he made $2.65 million.
