Report: Hunter returning to Twins

Torii Hunter is coming home.

The 39-year-old outfielder has agreed to a one-year, $10.5-million contract with the Twins, tweets Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.

USA Today’s Bob Nightengale was the first to report the deal.

Hunter played the first 11 years of his career with the Twins, who drafted him in the first round of the 1993 First-Year Player Draft. He won seven Gold Glove Awards and made two All-Star appearances in his first stint with the club.

Hunter left Minnesota in 2008 to sign with the Angels before playing the last two seasons with the Tigers in chase of his first World Series title.

Hunter hit .286 with 17 home runs last season and is a .279/.334/.446 career hitter in 18 Major League seasons.
