Transaction Reaction: Ryan Doumit

The Minnesota Twins sign Ryan Doumit to a one-year, $3 million contract, with incentive bonuses

  • I like this deal for the Twins.  Very low risk, and Doumit has been a serviceable major league hitter in his career.  In 2011, he posted a .303/.353/.477 slash line.   Doumit plays both of the positions (C/1B) at which the Twins have highly-fragile stars (Mauer, Morneau), and sizes up well as a fill-in starter.  Plus, if Hell freezes over and both Mauer and Morneau are healthy at the same time, Doumit has the versatility to play a corner outfield spot.
