Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins have sold Michael Tonkin to the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in Japan.
Tonkin has agreed to a two-year, $2.1 million contract with the Fighters and will serve as their closer, per Berardino's sources. The 27-year-old right-hander wasn't going to be guaranteed a spot in the Minnesota bullpen for 2018 after posting a rough 5.14 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 21 innings this season, so he did pretty well for himself here.
