As a Twins fan, I wish him well in his reunion with Cuddyer. Very friendly contract for the Rox at 2/13 to replace Helton.

If he can stay healthy, I'd expect a floor of 18-75-.270.

Would have liked to see him land somewhere where he could DH part time, but it's not like he was doing that last year, and he was pretty fine. Gotta like the home park he's landing in, and I imagine he does some damage there. Still, it's hard to view him as anything other than a platoon player vs RHP, where I think he has tremendous value. Wouldn't surprise me to see him post .290 - 20 HR, 75 RBI vs RHP alone if he's able to stay healthy next season. Pair that with something you can stick there when he's facing a LHP, and you could have yourself some decent value at 1B for a very small investment, and the cost of an additional roster spot. Not bad.
