MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Outfielder Carlos Quentin and the Minnesota Twins have agreed to a minor league contract, giving the 33-year-old a chance to revive his career.

The deal, announced Tuesday, would give Quentin a $750,000 salary if he is added to the 40-man roster. He will report to big league spring training.

Quentin announced his retirement last May through the Seattle Mariners, citing chronic knee injuries. He played briefly for their Triple-A club Tacoma.
