With Ken Rosenthal reporting that the Twins are working on a one-year $7 million deal with Jonathan Schoop, Torreyes will likely compete with Ehire Adrianza for utility infield time around the field. Schoop made $8.5 million in 2018.
For his career, Schoop has hit.258 with 110 home runs and 333 RBI's.
As for Schoop, he split last season with the Baltimore Orioles and Milwaukee Brewers and batted.233 with 21 homers and 61 RBIs in 131 games.More news: France tops OECD list of most taxed countries
"Look, it was a bad deal, and that's on me", Brewers general manager David Stearns said after Schoop was let go.
Torreyes, 26, can play second base, shortstop and third base. Nick Gordon, the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft, struggled at Triple-A a year ago but could be ready for his debut soon.
