The Twins have refused to acknowledge that they are close to a three-year, $21 million contract agreement with outfielder Josh Willingham. But all indications point to the deal being just about complete.

According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Willingham arrived in Minnesota on Wednesday for his pre-signing physical — a process that will carry into Thursday. If he passes, the Twins will likely make things official on Thursday night.

Willingham, 32, batted .246/.332/.477 with 29 home runs and 98 RBI in 136 games this past year for the A’s. The Twins are expected to start him in left field.
