Kubel agrees to minor league deal with Twins

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins have signed Jason Kubel to a minor league contract, according to a report on MLB.com.

Kubel left Minnesota after the 2011 season for a two-year, $16 million deal to go to Arizona. He was traded to Cleveland last season.

Aaron Gleeman, of NBC Sports wrote, "At this point in his career Kubel should really be a platoon designated hitter, which would keep him from having to play defense or face left-handed pitching, but the Twins already have a few guys who fit those descriptions."

Kubel, 31, hit just .216 with five homers and a .610 OPS in 97 games for the Diamondbacks and Indians. Those were by far the worst numbers of his career.
