MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins and third baseman Trevor Plouffe have agreed to a $2.35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. He had 13 errors. In 2012, Plouffe homered 24 times, but he batted .235 in 422 at-bats and was charged with 17 errors. Drafted as a shortstop in the first round in 2004, Plouffe has also been used in right field and at second base.

Minnesota announced the deal on Friday. Two Twins remained in arbitration: left-hander Brian Duensing and right-hander Anthony Swarzak.
