Twins Sign Speedy Outfielder; Had Impressive 2022 Season In Minors

The Minnesota Twins have signed outfielder Andrew Stevenson to a minor-league contract, according to recent reports.

Stevenson, who spent the last five seasons with the Washington Nationals, is expected to provide organizational depth to the Twins in the outfield.

While Stevenson's MLB numbers aren't particularly impressive, he turned heads last season in Triple-A Rochester, where he slashed .279/.344/.457, with 16 home runs, 67 RBIs, 39 stolen bases and 81 runs scored over 135 games.

The 28-year-old's impressive contact ability and speed could earn him some outfield reps in the majors, but it may be difficult for him to break into the Twins' current outfield depth. Nonetheless, his glove and speed make him a valuable addition to the organization. 

For his major-league career, spanning five seasons and 248 games, Stevenson holds a .248/.322/.365 triple-slash line, with eight home runs, 49 RBIs. five stolen bases and 51 runs scored.

He is a former second-round pick by the Nationals in the 2015 MLB Draft.
