By Sports Network
Minneapolis, MN - The Minnesota Twins have agreed to terms with pitcher Carl Pavano on a two-year contract, the team announced on its Twitter account Wednesday evening.
The 35-year-old right-hander went 17-11 with a 3.75 earned run average in 32 starts last year for the Twins, his first full season with the team. He lost his lone start in the Division Series to the Yankees, the team he spent a mostly injury-plagued four seasons with from 2005-08.
He was acquired by Minnesota from Cleveland in August, 2009 and went 5-4 with a 4.64 ERA over 12 starts to finish the campaign at 14-12.
Pavano owns a career record of 97-89 with a 4.34 ERA in 258 games, 240 as a starter, over 12 seasons with the Expos, Marlins, Yankees, Indians and Twins.
