Kevin Slowey Signs One-Year Deal With Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins have avoided arbitration with yet another of their eligible free agents, as they came to terms on a deal with right-handed pitcher Kevin Slowey yesterday.

↵

Slowey, a 26-year-old, was 13-6 with a 4.45 ERA last year with the Twins, with his best performance coming when he threw seven no-hit innings against the Oakland Athletics on August 15.

↵

The deal is for $2.7 million this season. Slowey had submitted an arbitration figure of $3.1 million, while the Twins countered with an offer of $2.3 million. . .so, the two sides pretty much met in the middle on this deal.

The Twins still have two arbitration-eligible players that they will hope to get deals done with prior to the Feb. 1 date where actual arbitration hearings begin. Those players are left-handed pitcher Francisco Liriano and outfielder Delmon Young.
