Sources: Twins land Donaldson for 4 years, $92M

Third baseman Josh Donaldson and the Twins have agreed to a four-year deal that includes $92 million guaranteed, with a chance it increases to $104 million in value if he hits escalators on a fifth-year club option, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan.

MLB.com reports that Josh Donaldson has agreed to a four-year deal with the Twins, giving the Twins -- who set the single-season record with 307 home runs in 2019 -- another slugger while improving their defense at third base as well. The Twins had a record five players hit 30-plus home runs and now add Donaldson, who hit 37. It's a huge loss for the Braves as they lose their cleanup hitter in a lineup that now looks very thin once you get past Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies and Freddie Freeman.
