MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins and veteran starting pitcher J.A. Happ have agreed to an $8 million, one-year contract, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced it. The 38-year-old Happ spent the past 2 1/2 seasons with the New York Yankees. Happ finished with a 2-2 record and 3.47 ERA in nine starts last year.
