The Twins have avoided arbitration by agreeing to one-year contracts with outfielder Robbie Grossman, utilityman Ehire Adrianza, and pitchers Trevor May and Ryan Pressly.

Grossman's deal is worth $2 million. The 28-year-old hit nine home runs and had 45 RBI, with a slash line of .246/.361/.380 in 2017. He played 63 of his 119 games as a designated hitter. He made $552,500 last season.

Adrianza hit .265/.324/.383 with two home runs and 24 RBI last season with the Twins. The 28-year-old came to the Twins after three seasons with the Giants. He played all four infield positions, the outfield and designated hitter last season. His deal is worth $1 million.

May's contract will be worth $650,000 and Pressly will get $1.6 million.

Pressly, 29, pitched in 57 games last season and had 61 strikeouts in 61.1 innings, with a 1.158 WHIP and 4.70 ERA. He spent part of the season at Class AAA Rochester. He made $1.175 million last season.

May, 28, was injured last season, suffering a torn elbow ligament in March. He pitched the previous three seasons, and 102 games, for the Twins. He gets a raise of $100,000.

Pitcher Kyle Gibson is the Twins' remaining arbitration eligible player. Gibson earned $2.9 million last season, when he was 12-10 with a 5.07 ERA.
