AP source: Twins, SS Andrelton Simmons agree to $10.5M deal

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Twins and slick-fielding shortstop Andrelton Simmons agreed Tuesday night to a $10.5 million, one-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal is subject to a physical exam.

The 31-year-old Simmons, a four-time Gold Glove winner, played the last five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels after spending his first four years in the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves. His fielding ability has been so superb that he received MVP award votes in 2013, 2017 and 2018 despite essentially average production at the plate.
