David Gibson | Brew Crew Ball: Kolten Wong signed a two-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers worth a guaranteed $18 million. Wong’s contract contains an option for a third year that would bring it up to $25 million. Wong would have fit on just about every team, but adding him to the Brewers raises the question of what to do with Keston Hiura.

TJ Gorsegner | Twinkie Town: Late Tuesday night, the Twins re-signed Nelson Cruz to a one-year, $13 million deal. With the White Sox making early, impactful moves like trading for Lance Lynn and signing Liam Hendriks, the Twins needed to make some moves to stay ahead in the AL Central. Cruz goes a long way toward helping out the lineup, and the Twins have also made an offer to Marcell Ozuna. Also, the Twins signed Alex Colomé to a one-year deal with a club option for 2022.

Michael McDermott and Jim McLennan | AZ Snake Pit: The Diamondbacks signed Joakim Soria to a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $3.5 million. Soria spent the last two seasons in Oakland, pitching to a 3.46 FIP over 91 13 innings.
