MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins are bringing back designated hitter Nelson Cruz and adding right-hander Alex Colomé. Cruz will get a one-year, $13 million contract, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations. Colomé’s contract is at least one year and $6.25 million, according to a second person with knowledge of those negotiations. Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because each deal was pending completion of a physical exam. Cruz is a key cog in the lineup and the clubhouse. Colomé comes from the division rival White Sox and should step in as the primary closer.
