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.
