The campaign was a drop in production from his 2017 All-Star season with the Orioles when Schoop established career bests of a.293 average with 32 homers and 105 RBIs.

The Minnesota Twins announced the signing of infielder, and agreed to terms with second baseman Jonathan Schoop on Thursday. Between the two clubs, he hit.233 with 21 homers and 61 RBIs. The Twins got going last minth with what promises to be a busy offseason by claiming first baseman C.J. Cron off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays and then reaching agreement on a $4.8 million, one-year contract. He is a lifetime.281 hitter with four home runs and 56 RBIs in 229 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2015) and Yankees (2016-18).

According to a release sent out by the organization, Torreyes, 26, played 41 games with the New York Yankees last season. He hit.280 (28-for-100) with seven doubles, one triple, seven RBI, nine runs scored and a.294 on-base percentage.

The Twins' 40-man roster is now at 39. Baseball's winter meetings begin Monday in Las Vegas.
