The Twins and outfielder Delmon Young have agreed to a one-year, $5.375 million deal to avoid arbitration. Young was the Twins'  last remaining arbitration case.

Young had filed for $6.25 million while the Twins filed for $4.65 million.  With the sides staring at a Friday arbitration hearing in Arizona, Young agreed to a deal that is $75,000 under the midpoint.

Young batted. 298 with 21 homers and a team-high 112 RBI last season. He also led the team with 46 doubles.

The Twins now have just over $110 million wrapped up in 19 players. The remainder of the roster should consist of players with zero to three years of experience. There's a chance the Twins' payroll should approach $113-115 million
