25-year-old German outfielder Max Kepler has signed a one-year $3,125 million contract with the Minnesota Twins, avoiding arbitration. He batted .233/.313/.417 with 56 home runs in 419 games since reaching the big leagues in 2015. Since the middle of the 2016 season he has been a full-time player for the Twins. It was the first offseason where he had to go through the arbitration process. He will be eligible to become a free agent after the 2022 season.
