Additionally, a source confirms that catcher Mitch Garver will have a tendered contract through a club option for 2021. The exact money will be worked out at a later date. Reliever Caleb Thielbar has also signed for a one-year, $700,000 contract to return with the team.

The other Twins who are arbitration-eligible entering Wednesday's 7 p.m. tender deadline: P Jose Berrios, OF Byron Buxton, P Taylor Rogers, P Matt Wisler, and OF Eddie Rosario. Of the five, only Rosario is expected to be non-tendered.
