• Vikings top draft choice Anthony Barr signed a four-year contract calling for $12.7 million, and it is all guaranteed. Teddy Bridgewater, the quarterback the Vikings selected after trading for Seattle’s first-round pick, could earn $6.8 million over four years, but $5.5 million is guaranteed. The Vikings will spend a total of $6.5 million this year to sign their 10 draft choices. Two more Vikings draft choices, Scott Crichton and Antone Exum, agreed to contracts Wednesday. Another third rounder, Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon, is the team’s only unsigned draft choice.

• Twins first baseman Joe Mauer extended his 15-game hitting streak in interleague play after going 1-for-3 Wednesday night. He is hitting .283.

• Thomas Vanek, the former Gophers hockey star who has been an outstanding player first for Buffalo, then the Islanders and now Montreal, definitely has sent word to people close to the Wild front office that he wants to finish his career living year-round in Stillwater, where he resides in the offseason. Vanek turned down a seven-year, $50 million contract offer from the Islanders because of his desire to finish his career here.

• Florida is playing in the SEC baseball tournament, and the Gators’ best pitcher this season has been Logan Shore, a freshman from Coon Rapids who posted a 7-2 record with a 1.69 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 85 innings. … Speaking of college baseball, Alec Crawford was named Big Ten pitcher of the week for the Gophers. Crawford pitched eight innings and allowed three hits in the Gophers’ 2-1 victory over Indiana last week.

• Trevor Yedoni, a Gophers long jumper who also runs the 4x100 relay, won the Big Ten freshman of the Year award. The team also gave Zach Siegmeier, a pole vaulter, the Garry Bjorklund Award as team MVP.
