MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins added Christian Vázquez on Monday, agreeing to a three-year, $30 million deal with the veteran receiver.

Two people with knowledge of the contract confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity as he was pending completion of a physical examination.

Vázquez played for Boston and Houston this season, hitting .274 with nine home runs and 52 RBIs in 119 games. He was traded to the Astros on August 1.

Vázquez, 32, also played in six postseason games, batting .235 with three RBIs while helping Houston win the World Series.
