Twins sign four players, avoid arbitration

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins signed four players to contracts Friday, avoiding arbitration with them.

The team announced it has inked left-hander Tommy Milone, third baseman Trevor Plouffe, reliever Casey Fien and infielder Eduardo Nunez to one-year deals.

Milone, who was acquired in a trade with Oakland during the 2014 season, is set to earn $2.775 million in 2015. Plouffe’s one-year deal is for $4.8 million. Fien will make $1.375 million, while Nunez’s deal is for $1.025 million.

The Twins still have not reached agreements with left-hander Brian Duensing or outfielder Jordan Schafer, both of whom are also arbitration eligible.
