Jamey Carroll Signed By Minnesota Twins, According To Reports

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly made their first major signing of the offseason, signing shortstop Jamey Carroll from the Los Angeles Dodgers. Once it's finalized, Carroll will be the first player to be signed by Terry Ryan in his second go-around as the Twins General Manager.

Carroll, a 10-year MLB veteran who will turn 38 before next season begins, is more of a defensive player than anything as he's previously been a bit of a utility player in the past. He played at second base and shortstop last season with experience playing third base and both corner outfield positions in the past as well.

Carroll's contract with the Twins would be in the $7 million range for two years, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. That's quite a large amount of money to invest in a 38-year-old shortstop -- the same position Tsuyoshi Nishioka plays -- but Twinkie Town seems to believe it's an alright move.
