CHASE LAMBIN SIGNS WITH TWINS
2010 Mid-season I.L. All Star Chase Lambin has reportedly signed a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins with an invite to their major league spring training camp for the 2011 season.
Lambin, 31 was signed by the Nationals last winter after playing in Japan during the 2009 campaign. With the Chiefs last season he batted .252 with a team high 15 home runs and 58 RBI in 136 games.
After being named as the MVP of the AAA All Star game in Lehigh Valley he batted only .182 with 4 home runs and 13 RBI in 48 games the rest of the season. With the Chiefs he played third base, second base, first base and rightfield.
If Lambin does not make the Twins major league roster he could spend the 2011 season at Rochester their AAA-affiliate.
