Twins sign Kubel to two-year contract with club option for 3rd

According to LaVelle E. Neal III, the Minnesota Twins have signed Jason Kubel to a two year deal, buying him out of arbitration. Not sure of terms yet, but Kubel will have to pass a physical. He'll take his physical at TwinsFest. All Twins players undergo physicals during this event. That's interesting, and I suppose it makes a lot of sense, since they're all in town and gives the team a better idea of what's going on to prep for spring training.

So, what does this mean for the outfield? Span,Gomez, Kubel, Cuddyer and Young are now all under contract. Will Kubel be the odds on favorite for DH, leaving the other 4 to play in the outfield? Who becomes the fourth outfielder? Does this push Young out of the way so they can move him?
