Twins sign Kurt Suzuki to 2-year extension

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kurt Suzuki isn't getting any younger and the Minnesota Twins appear no closer to contention than they were when he signed a one-year deal in the offseason.

That didn't stop the veteran catcher from pushing to stick around a little while longer.

The Twins signed Suzuki to a two-year, $12 million contract extension on Thursday, ensuring that the soon-to-be 31-year-old will stay in Minnesota to continue the work he's done with the team's starting rotation.
