The Matt Guerrier era has come to an end for the Minnesota Twins.

According to multiple reports, the 32-year-old right-hander has agreed to a three-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Guerrier will earn approximately $4 million per year, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal

Guerrier spent seven seasons with the Twins, posting a 3.38 ERA, 4.44 FIP, 310 strikeouts and 147 walks in 472 innings. He threw at least 69 innings in each of the last six seasons.

The Twins met with Guerrier's agent at the winter meetings, and the two sides had an understanding of what the Twins were able to do. But Minnesota did not make a formal offer.

Guerrier was a Type-A free agent, but the Twins did not offer him arbitration, meaning they will not receive any draft compensation.
