Twins Sign New Four-Year Contract with Glen Perkins

One Of Us. - USA TODAY Sports

New contract ensures "Joe Mauer standing next to Glen Perkins compared to young Joe Mauer standing next to young Glen Perkins" pictures through at least 2017.

The Twins announced Friday that they have signed all-star closer Glen Perkins to a new contract that will keep him with the team through 2017. The new contract replaces the old one, which ran through 2015, and also gives Perkins a slight raise (because he's One Of Us).

Perkins, who is 31 years old, would have received $3.75 million per year for 2014 and 2015 under his old contract. Under the new contract, Perkins will get:

  • $4.025 million in 2014
  • $4.65 million in 2015
  • $6.3 million in 2016
  • $6.5 million in 2017
  • $6.5 million in 2018, if club option is exercised
Twins baseball communications manager tweeted this picture of Glen signing the new contract:

In case you were wondering, Joe Mauer and Ricky Nolasco are the only other Twins signed through 2017.
