Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Minnesota Twins have reportedly signed catcher Kurt Suzuki to a one-year contract.

According to multiple reports, the deal is worth $2.75 million.

Suzuki hit .232 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 94 games for the Nationals and Athletics in 2013. He's a career .253 hitter with 67 homers and 359 RBI in 840 games with the A's and Nationals.

The 30-year-old Suzuki will compete with Josmil Pinto for playing time behind the plate. Pinto made his MLB debut last season and hit .342 with four homers and 12 RBI in 21 games.

The Twins were in the market for a catcher this offseason with Joe Mauer moving away from the position because of a concussion that cut short his 2013 season. The need for catching grew even more when they traded Ryan Doumit on Wednesday to the Braves.
