Twins, Casilla agree on one-year deal

The Minnesota Twins and middle infielder Alexi Casilla have agreed to a one-year, $865,000 contract, avoiding salary arbitration.

With second baseman Orlando Hudson leaving as a free agent and shortstop J.J. Hardy traded, Casilla and Japanese acquisition Tsuyoshi Nishioka are in line to take over the starting middle infield spots.

Casilla hit .276 with four triples and six steals in 152 at bats last season.
