The Twins and third baseman Trevor Plouffe avoided arbitration Friday with a one-year deal, according to Darren Wolfson. Per Wolfson, the contract is for $2.35 million.
Plouffe was in his first year of eligibility for arbitration. The Twins now have two remaining players -- Anthony Swarzak and Brian Duensing -- to get settled. The Twins tendered contracts to all three players in early December. Swarzak also is in his first year of arbitration eligibility, while Duensing is in his second year of eligibility.
Today is the deadline to exchange figures between the club and a player. Historically the Twins have met somewhere in the middle, preferring to avoid salary arbitration.
