The Minnesota Twins and catcher Kurt Suzuki remain "very far apart" in contract extension talks, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

Suzuki, 30, is hitting .304 with two home runs and 41 RBI for the Twins this season. He made his first career All-Star game this year in Minnesota. MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo confirmed Suzuki and the Twins are not close to an extension.

Earlier Thursday, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported the two sides were talking, and there was a "reasonable chance" an agreement would be reached.

Minnesota acquired Tommy Milone from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for Sam Fuld on Thursday.

The Twins are in last place in the AL Central at 48-57.
