Minnesota Twins Sign Jim Thome to a 1-Year Deal!
Jim Thome is coming back to the Minnesota Twins. After some rumors that the Texas Rangers were interested in Thome he has decided to return to the Twins, with a 1 year $3 million deal with incentives. Last season, Jim Thome hit .283 with 25 homers and 59 RBIs in 276 at-bats. He brought a big bat to the organization and is definitely a fan favorite. He ranks eighth on the all-time list with 589 homers and needs 11 to reach the 600 Home Run Club. Could he hit number 600 at Target Field? That would be a great milestone. Welcome back Jim Thome!
