Twins Sign Veteran Utility Player; Holds .301 Batting Average Since 2019

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with free agent infielder Donovan Solano, pending a physical, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Solano, who spent the 2022 season with the Reds, will provide infield depth and versatility on the Twins' Opening Day bench.

The 35-year-old Solano slashed .284/.339/.385 with four homers and 24 RBI in 304 plate appearances last season.

Before playing for the Reds, Solano spent three seasons with the San Francisco Giants and holds a strong .301 batting average over the last four seasons.

While he has only hit 18 home runs over 316 games during that time and stolen just two bases, the right-handed hitter should be a useful utility option for the Twins in the infield, especially against left-handed pitching.

Over his nine-year career, the thirty-five-year-old holds a .278/.327/.374 triple-slash line, with 27 home runs, 206 RBIs, 13 stolen bases and 205 runs scored across 686 games. Photo Credit:  Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports
