AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

MLB: NLDS-St. Louis Cardinals at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Well, it finally happened. Josh Donaldson has signed with the Minnesota Twins, per MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand.

The deal is for 4 years and $92 million, and Donaldson will play third base for the Twins. We assume that by signing Donaldson, this means the Twins will be moving Miguel Sano to first base. According to the Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, this is the second largest deal offered to a player over the age of 33 in league history.

Donaldson has been the top remaining free-agent on the market for awhile, and was reportedly weighing multiple $100 million dollar deals. It seems his market was a bit less. Donaldson’s deal has an average annual value of $23 million, because of course its $23 million. Move over Joe Mauer.

As usual, here at Twinkie Town we will have lots more analysis of this move to come, but in the meantime, welcome to Minnesota, Josh!
