Top Free Agent catcher Jason Castro, formerly of Houston, signed with the Minnesota Twins.
Castro, 29, has signed a three year deal with the Twins, with a guaranteed $24 million dollars coming his way.
As I mentioned in our Top 25 Free Agents posts, catchers are a hot commodity this season, and while Castro is moderately weaker at the plate than some other prospects available, he is an excellent pitch framer and can work well in a platoon.
The Twins are looking for an everyday catcher since moving Joe Mauer to first base due to concussion protection. Last season, their usual catcher was Kurt Suzuki. Castro should be more productive both defensively and offensively than Suzuki, who presumably will be leaving Minnesota.
This signing leaves Wilson Ramos and Matt Wieters as the two biggest profile catchers available.
