The Minnesota Twins have offered outfielder Michael Cuddyer a three-year, $25 million dollar contract, according to NBC Sports Hardballtalk.

It’s been speculated that such an offer would keep Cuddyer in Minnesota, however, he has yet to accept the deal.  The Twins are also reportedly interested in Josh Willingham if Cuddyer falls through. Willingham’s history of back problems, however, may pose a problem to offering a similar three-year agreement. Cuddyer, 32, posted .284/.346/.459 with 20 home runs and 70 RBIs this season with the Twins.  The free agent appeared in his first All-Star game this year.
