Twins sign Andrelton Simmons to $10.5M contract

USA Today Sports

The Minnesota Twins signed free agent shortstop Andrelton Simmons to a one-year, $10.5 million contract.

Simmons also drew interest from the Phillies, Reds, and Blue Jays.

However, he’ll likely take over the shortstop position for the reigning AL Central champion Twins.

The 31-year-old slashed .297/.346/.356 across 127 plate appearances last season with the Angels before opting out in September due to concerns over COVID-19.

Simmons will add a solid bat in Minnesota’s lineup, making him a intriguing shortstop option for the upcoming fantasy baseball season.
