Twins sign infielder Torreyes

The deal for Torreyes, a career.281/.310/.375 hitter in 614 major-league plate appearances, is a split contract that could pay him $800,000 if he earns a spot on the big-league roster.

Schoop will have the ability to show that 2017 wasn't just a fluke on this "prove it" deal, and playing in a smaller market on a team that was mediocre last season will take a lot of pressure off of his back. The Athletic first reported the discussions with Schoop, who was an All-Star with Baltimore in 2017 when he hit a career-high 32 home runs.

The 27-year-old finished the season with a.233 batting average with 21 home runs and 61 RBIs. "We made a trade for a player we thought was going to be here for basically a year and a half, and I was wrong".

The Austrian boss will have a tough time keeping Saints in the division, after a very poor start to the season under Mark Hughes . Ralph Hasenhuttl is up for the challenge of steering Southampton to safety as he looks to make his mark in the Premier League .

Torreyes, 26, can play second base, shortstop and third base.

The Twins also signed infielder Ronald Torreyes to a one-year contact.

Torreyes batted.280 with seven RBIs in 41 games for the Yankees last season. First baseman Joe Mauer retired last month, after second baseman Brian Dozier and shortstop/third baseman Eduardo Escobar were traded at the non-waiver deadline last summer.
