Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki signed a two-year, $12 million contract extension Thursday, July 31. The deal also includes a vesting option for the 2017 season. Suzuki is hitting .304 with two home runs and 41 RBIs on the year.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has been one of the few bright spots this year for the Twinkies. He won't provide much power, but with the way he's swinging the lumber this year, he's useful in most formats when he's in the lineup.

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is the subject of trade interest by several teams, including the Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Both lost big-name catchers in Matt Wieters (elbow) for the rest of the season and Yadier Molina (thumb) for at least a big chunk of the remainder. Suzuki would receive an upgrade at either potential destination and would be a valuable league-crosser, even with his BA likely to drop a little.
