According to a team press release, the Minnesota Twins have signed left-handed pitcher Glen Perkins to a three-year extension that will keep the pitcher under contract through the 2015 season. The deal is worth a guaranteed $10.3 million.
“We are very pleased to reach this agreement with Glen”, said Twins Executive Vice President/General Manager Terry Ryan. “He has been a reliable reliever for us and has helped stabilize the back end of our bullpen in the set-up role. When we were looking for someone to step up last year, it was Glen who seized the opportunity and pitched the way we knew he could, after selecting him out of the University of Minnesota.”
