Minnesota Twins Introduce Latest Addition To Lineup

Attached Image: USATSI_7416816.jpg After passing his physical, the Twins and Kendrys Morales agreed on a one-year contract in hopes of increasing the offense which had disappeared in May.

After scoring 131 runs in 24 games in April, the fourth-highest in baseball, the Twins managed just 92 runs in 29 games in May, the second-lowest totals.

Morales, Ryan said, figures to turn that around.

When the deadline that would have required the Twins to lose draft pool money passed, talks began with the free agent designated hitter/first baseman.
During Sunday's broadcast, Terry Ryan said the Twins toyed with the idea two weeks ago and then talks grew serious during the MLB draft when they were discussing contracts with Morales' agent, Scott Boras.

Because Morales is out of options, he will have to acclimate himself at the major league level. During his extended time-off, Ryan said that Morales did face live college pitching while working out at Boras' training facility in Miami, Florida.

On Sunday morning, Twins General Manager Terry Ryan introduced the latest addition to the lineup:
