Twins, Doumit Closing In On Extension

The Twins are closing in on a multiyear extension with Ryan Doumit, agent Paul Cobbe tells ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (Twitter link). Doumit, 31, is playing under a one-year, $3MM contract that's set to expire this coming offseason.

Doumit's .271/.332/.443 season batting line comes close to replicating his career line of .271/.334/.442. He has split his time between catcher and designated hitter in his first season with the Twins, also making appearances at first base and in right field. Doumit posted a .303/.353/.477 line in 236 plate appearances for the Pirates in 2011, when he missed significant time because of a non-displaced fracture in his left ankle.
