Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins sign Thome to one-year, $1.5 million deal

Posted by: Phil Miller under Twins offense Updated: January 26, 2010 - 5:59 PM

The Twins have agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with slugger Jim Thome, a person familiar with the negotiations said today, adding that the deal includes up to $700,000 in incentives.

Thome, 39, has hit 564 career home runs, but the Twins signed him to bolster their bench. They already have Jason Kubel as a left-handed hitting DH.

Correction: The agreement would pay Thome up to $750,000 in incentives.
