MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Jason Kubel is returning to the Minnesota Twins.

The 31 year-old outfielder is signing a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Kubel smashed a career-high 30 home runs for Arizona in 2012, but slumped last season, batting just .216. He was released by the Diamondbacks before being picked up by Cleveland.

Kubel was a 12th round draft pick of the Twins in 2000. His best season with Minnesota came in 2009 when he hit .300 with 28 home runs.
