Twins Sign Doumit; 1 year, $3M

Doumit should have known to never go in against a Molina when home plate is on the line.



For the second Friday in a row, the Twins have made a personnel move that's low on flash but fills a definite need. Last week, it was acquiring Jamey Carroll to shore up shortstop; today, it's the acquisition of free agent catcher Ryan Doumit to a one-year, $3 million deal (pending physical), as first reported by ESPN's Jerry Crasnick and confirmed by multiple sources.

Doumit has the potential to fill multiple needs. As noted by Phil Mackey, Doumit also played first base and right field for the Pirates last season. With Michael Cuddyer's departure a real possibility and Justin Morneau's health always in doubt, this gives the Twins a veteran to plug in to those slots instead of the nearest warm body from Rochester.

Of course, Doumit has his own injury history, the most recent being a two-month stint on the DL last year for a broken ankle.

Your thoughts, as always, are welcome.
