MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Byung Ho Park is making the move from South Korea to Minnesota to play for the Twins, and he's bringing his big bat with him.

Park agreed Tuesday to a $12 million, four-year contract with the Twins, who are looking to add power to their lineup around promising youngster Miguel Sano and veterans Trevor Plouffe and Brian Dozier.

The 29-year-old will get $2.75 million in each of the next two seasons and $3 million each in 2018 and '19. The Twins have a $6.5 million option for 2020 with a $500,000 buyout.
