MINNEAPOLIS -- After hitting .233 with nine home runs and 18 RBIs in an injury plagued season, Minnesota Twins outfielder Kyle Garlick has declined arbitration and agreed to a one-year, $750,000 contract for 2023.

Garlick, 27, was placed on the 10-injured list three times last season for hamstring, rib cage and wrist injuries and played in only 66 games.
