Twins extend Suzuki deal

– Kurt Suzuki isn’t getting any younger and Minnesota appears no closer to contention than they were when he signed a one-year deal in the offseason.

That didn’t stop the veteran catcher from pushing to stick around a little while longer.

The Twins signed Suzuki, 30, to a two-year, $12 million contract extension, ensuring he will stay in Minnesota to continue the work he’s done with the team’s starting rotation.

“I’m happy we came to a compromise and got this done,” Suzuki said before the Twins played the Kansas City Royals. “In my heart this is where I wanted to be. I really wasn’t thinking about the open market. I was thinking about what we can do to get this done. This is my first priority, my first choice.”
