|Kurt Suzuki 'not trying to be' Joe Mauer |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/30/14) Although he was essentially signed to replace Joe Mauer behind the plate, Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki said he won't try to measure up to the former AL MVP.
"I'm not trying to be Joe," Suzuki said, per FOX Sports North. "I feel like I've got a lot to offer still in this game. I still feel on top of my game. Obviously the last couple years haven't gone the way I wanted to, but the way my body feels, I'm in a good spot mentally right now. I'm looking forward to this season."
The Twins didn't sign Suzuki, who is a career .253 hitter, for his bat. He was signed to a one-year, $2.75 million contract this offseason because of his leadership and defensive abilities.
"We talked to Oakland when we were out there and they had nothing but the best things in the world to say about Suzuki as far as a leader, a catcher, calling the ball game, very intelligent, helping everybody out," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He brings a lot to the table."

(12/23/13) The Twins announced on Monday that they finalized their one-year deal with catcher Kurt Suzuki. The former Athletics and Nationals backstop will earn $2.75 million in 2014.
Suzuki will split time with Josmil Pinto behind the plate, and according to ESPN.com, he will serve as a mentor for the 24-year-old rookie.
|Report: Kurt Suzuki signs with Twins |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/20/13) Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday that the Twins have agreed to a deal with catcher Kurt Suzuki. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that Suzuki will earn $2.75 million, plus incentives.
Suzuki, 30, hit .232 with five home runs over 94 games last season, split between the Nationals and A's. He has a career .253 batting average and played in 560 games over a four-year stretch (2008-2011) as Oakland's primary catcher. He was traded from the A's to the Nationals in August 2012, then traded back to the A's last August, a week before the waiver trade deadline.
With Ryan Doumit now on the Braves, Joe Mauer moving to first base, and three untested catchers on the 40-man roster, Suzuki is a prime candidate to start 2014 as Minnesota's primary catcher.
