The Twins found their shortstop. Jamey Carroll signed a two year, $6.75 million dollar deal with the Twins and he’ll compete to be the teams starting shortstop in 2012. My guess is, with his experience and the amount of money they’re paying him, he already has the job but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens coming spring.
Carroll gets a $2 million signing bonus, $1.75 million in 2012 and $2.7 in 2013. There’s also a $2 million mutual option for 2014 but it vests if Carroll has 400 plate appearances in 2013. Carroll has been solid for the Dodgers the past couple of years and while he’s usually played less then 130 games in a season, that trend has been bucked the past couple of season. There’s not a lot of power, but Carroll has a solid strikeout to walk ratio and a career .356 OBP.
