One down, two to go.
The Minnesota Twins announced on Tuesday that right-hander Kevin Slowey has agreed to a one-year, $2.7 million contract, avoiding arbitration.
Slowey, who has a 4.41 ERA with 361 strikeouts and 79 walks in 473 1/3 career innings, reportedly filed an arbitration figure of $3.1 million, and the Twins filed $2.3 million.
Francisco Liriano and Delmon Young are the only two remaining arbitration cases remaining. Arbitration hearings begin February 1, but the Twins have settled cases prior to seeing a judge with all players over the last decade except Kyle Lohse (twice), Johan Santana and Matt Lawton.
