The Minnesota Twins made some serious moves this offseason after a disappointing 2021 campaign that saw a talented roster underachieve. The Twins went out and acquired former New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and third baseman Gio Urshela, former Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Sonny Gray and signed former Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa. The Twins weren't quite done yet even with Spring Training underway, as they came to an agreement with this former All-Star starting pitcher on a one-year contract, as reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Passan reports that Chris Archer and the Twins have agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.5 million. Archer, 33, can stand to make as much as $9.5 million in performance bonuses.

It's another addition to the rotation for Minnesota, who will be without ace right hander Kenta Maeda for much of the 2022 season. Archer provides some veteran depth to a staff that could be relying on youngsters Joe Ryan and Bailey Ober to eat up a hefty amount of innings this season.

The two-time All-Star has succumbed to a variety of injuries in recent years but owns a solid 3.87 career ERA while striking out an average of 9.8 batters per nine innings in nine big league seasons.

The days of Chris Archer striking out over 250 batters in a season are over, though the veteran right-hander can still provide some backend depth to a rotation, which fits the Twins perfectly.
