Former Twins second baseman Brian Dozier took to Instagram last night to say "thank you" to his fans.

After a crazy few days, I want to take a second and say thank you to everyone in Minnesota and twins fans across the Midwest. I’ve known one organization since 2009 and writing words on here cannot fully express how blessed I’ve been to call Minnesota home and be surrounded daily with unbelievable people within the Twins organization, amazing fans and phenomenal people in and around Minneapolis....y’all are freakin awesome. Cheers to you, twins will always have special place in my heart.

Dozier was traded late last month to the Los Angeles Dodgers, after playing his entire professional career in Minnesota.

Drafted by the Twins first in 2009, he was called up to the majors to replace Justin Morneau in 2012.

He was selected to play in the 2015 All Star Game, and won a Gold Glove in 2017.

Dozier also took out a full page ad in the Star Tribune with similar sentiments.
