With a deadline of 7 p.m. Tuesday to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players, the Minnesota Twins signed three players for 2022, tendered contracts to three others and non-tendered three pitchers.

Those who were non-tendered and are now free agents were left-hander Danny Coulombe and right-handers Trevor Megill and Juan Minaya.

Coulombe, who turned 32 in late October, posted a 3.67 ERA, 1.223 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 over 34 1/3 innings for the Twins in 2021. Megill had been claimed off waivers from the Chicago Cubs by Minnesota earlier Tuesday.

Minaya, 31, had a 2.48 ERA, 1.175 WHIP and 9.7 K/9 in 40 innings over 29 relief appearances for the Twins last season.

Minnesota avoided arbitration by signing three pitchers to one-year contracts: Jharel Cotton ($700,000), Tyler Duffey ($3.8 million) and Caleb Thielbar ($1.3 million).

The Twins tendered contracts to the other three players available for arbitration: infielder/outfielder Luis Arraez, catcher Mitch Garver and reliever Taylor Rogers.
