(Minneapolis, MN) -- The Minnesota Twins have come to an agreement with shortstop Andrelton Simmons for a one-year, $10.5-million contract. ESPN reports that Simmons will be the starting shortstop for the Twins, moving Jorge Polanco to second base and Luiz Arraez switching to a super-utility role. The four-time Gold Glove comes to Minnesota from spending the last five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, after being traded by the Atlanta Braves in 2015, who drafted him in the second round of the 2010 MLB Draft. The Philadelphia Phillies also had high interest in Simmons this off-season.
