The Twins made it official on Tuesday that they have signed Miguel Sano to a three-year contract that'll keep the slugging infielder with the team through at least 2023.

According to team officials, the deal is worth $30 million, with a club option for a fourth season that would pay Sano an additional $14 million.

Reports that the two sides had agreed to a contract began surfacing last week.

Sano, 26, would have been eligible for free agency after the 2021 season.

Despite missing the first month-and-a-half of the 2019 season because of a lacerated foot and playing only 105 games, Sano had career highs with 34 home runs and 79 RBI.

Sano has been bothered by injuries through much of his career, never playing more than 116 games in a season.

But he was an American League All-Star in 2017, hitting 28 homers before a leg injury ended his season early.
