Report: Twins working on contract extension for Brian Dozier
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) The Twins are working on signing second baseman Brian Dozier to a contract extension, according to the Pioneer Press. There were strong indications Tuesday the Twins were making progress with Dozier's agent -- Damon Lapa -- and a contract extension could be close to being finalized, a source said.
“I’d love to be here,” said Dozier, who declined to comment on the negotiations. “I don’t want to be anywhere else. If the opportunity presents itself, then I’m all for it. We’ll see.”
Dozier is not arbitration eligible until after the 2015 season. If he does sign a contract extension, it will likely run through all three of his arbitration years and likely 1-2 free agent years.
Dozier tied a career high with 33 doubles in 2014, but he did finish with a career-best 23 home runs. He also had a career-high 21 stolen bases and 112 runs.

|(9/26/14) Twins infielder Brian Dozier belted his 22nd home run Friday against the Tigers.
Dozier struck in the third inning. With the bases empty, Dozier belted a 91 mph fastball out to left for the solo shot. He also singled twice during the outing. Dozier finished 3 for 5, with three runs scored and three RBI.
Brian Dozier to rest after heating up

|(9/22/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire left Brian Dozier out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. Doug Bernier got the start at second base in Dozier's place.
Dozier has a modest four-game hitting streak, but it represents his best stretch during an otherwise difficult month of September. He is 7 for 17 (.412) with a home run over the last four games, but prior to that, he was batting .136 for the month.
Brian Dozier getting a breather

|(9/14/14) The Twins left Brian Dozier out of their starting lineup for Sunday's game at the White Sox. He was replaced at second base by Eduardo Escobar.
It is only the second time since July 31 that Dozier has not started a game. He is batting just .229 with two home runs and four stolen bases since the All-Star break.
Brian Dozier returns to the lineup Friday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the White Sox. Dozier was nursing a swollen thumb after sliding into third base Wednesday, which caused him to miss one game. He is hitting .234 with 19 homers and 48 RBI in 406 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Brian Dozier emerged from obscurity to be a useful Fantasy option in 2013, but he became even more relevant last season. In increasing his walk rate and his stolen base attempts, Dozier elevated himself among the elite at second base, as he finished third in Fantasy points and fifth in Rotisserie value at his position. Dozier's tendency to pop out keeps him from delivering a high batting average, and his .242 mark from last year was just one point above his career average. In every other regard, Dozier was a Fantasy stud among middle infielders, hitting 23 home runs, scoring 112 runs, driving in 71 runs and stealing 21 bases.|
Playing time status: Dozier tied for the sixth-highest total of plate appearances in the majors, and as long as he remains at or near the top of the Twins' batting order, he should continue to amass plate appearances -- and his counting stats.
2015 outlook: Because Dozier's performance two seasons ago seemingly came out of nowhere, he had some skeptics heading into last season. Having built on that initial success, it is safe to view Dozier as a top five second basemen in this season's drafts, making him an early-round option.
