According to a report by Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Minnesota Twins and third basemen Joe Crede are close to a one-year deal.

Free agent third baseman Joe Crede's closing in on a deal with the Twins, SI.com has learned.

It is unknown how much Crede's deal will be worth, but it is expected to be incentive-laden. Minnesota press has reported that's it's likely to top out at $7 million, including incentives.

More to come as more becomes known, but it looks as though Heyman knows Boras pretty well and this should be accurate. Thanks to Louie for sending me the link so quickly via e-mail.
